Pinellas deputies seek suspect accused of shooting another man in fight over a woman

LARGO — Pinellas County sheriff's deputies were looking for a man late Saturday accused of shooting another man in the hand during a fight over a woman.

Tommy "Buzz" Preston was drinking just before 6 p.m. at his home at 13189 Clay Ave. with his girlfriend, Alicia D. Hornak, 45, and a neighbor, Johnny J. Holdcroft, deputies said.

Preston, 47, became upset because his girlfriend was paying attention to Holdcroft, 51, deputies said. He threatened Holdcroft with a loaded .44-caliber revolver before shooting him in the hand, deputies said.

After the shooting, Preston fled the home, possibly on a motorcycle, authorities said. Holdcroft was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

An investigation of the shooting was ongoing.
