One sought, one jailed after shooting in parking lot at Brooksville apartment complex

BROOKSVILLE — Police were searching Tuesday for a man wanted in connection with a shooting at a Brooksville apartment complex.

Kyle Lee Chunn, 22, shot at two men shortly before 2 a.m. at Brookhaven Apartments, Brooksville Police said. He later fled on foot after a traffic stop.

Chunn and Lacie Nicole Swan, 19, arrived at the complex off the State Road 50 bypass in a stolen Nissan Altima and argued with the men in the parking lot, said Brooksville police Chief George Turner.

Chunn, who was driving, circled the complex and had another verbal exchange with the men before firing multiple rounds from a small-caliber handgun, Turner said. Authorities said the cause of the dispute was unclear. One of the men lives in the complex; the other lives in Spring Hill.

No one was injured, but at least one round hit a parked car.

"Luckily for everybody involved he's a really crummy shot," Turner said.

Chunn and Swan, both of Inverness, left in the Altima and were stopped by a Hernando County sheriff's deputy on U.S. 41., south of the Brooksville city limits. Chunn got out and ran and was still at large Tuesday afternoon.

He is wanted on two counts of attempted murder, possessing a firearm as a felon, and possession of a firearm with an altered serial number. He is considered armed and dangerous, Turner said.

Swan was booked into the Hernando County Detention Center on two counts of being a principal to attempted murder. She was being held without bail.

Both Chunn and Swan have criminal records in Florida.

Chunn was released from prison in February after serving three years for armed robbery and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, records show.

Swan pleaded no contest to felony battery in 2011 and was arrested earlier this year on a misdemeanor battery charge.
