Police: Bullet in Largo shooting may have been intended for someone else

LARGO — Police were searching Thursday for a man who shot a woman in the leg outside a Largo apartment.

The shooting happened about 5:30 a.m. at 13125 Wilcox Road. Kristen Gannon, 41, and John Black, 36, answered a knock at their door and then stepped outside to talk with a man on the doorstep, according to Largo police. A shot was fired and a bullet went through Gannon's leg and into the apartment's kitchen, police said.

The shooter fled. Gannon was taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Police believe Black was the intended victim. On Wednesday, Pinellas deputies gave Black a trespass warning at a tanning salon after receiving allegations of voyeurism against him, police said.

Charges against Black in the voyeurism case are being forwarded to the Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney's Office, which will decide whether to prosecute.

Glenn Grantner, 24, who lives next door to the apartment where the shooting happened, said he was unaware of what had taken place until friends began sending text messages early Thursday. He then looked outside and saw emergency vehicles.

"I've always liked this place because it's quiet," he said. "No big deal ever happens here."

Detectives were looking into several leads and trying to identify the shooting suspect on Thursday.
