Second suspect arrested in Dade City car shooting

DADE CITY — Deputies arrested a second man wanted in connection with a shooting last weekend.

About 1:25 a.m. Sept. 2, Patrick Carlson, 21, and Harold Fiscus, 25, were headed north on 14th Street when an oncoming Chevy truck swerved into their lane, forcing them to stop, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report.

Two men stood in the back of the Chevy, authorities say. They aimed handguns at the windshield of the stopped car and opened fire. At least 17 rounds rattled through the hood and windshield. Carlson and Fiscus were unharmed.

Carlson threw the car into reverse and slammed into Carlson's mother's van, which had been driving behind them, reports say, and all the vehicles fled.

Andres Limas, 18, was arrested later that night and charged with two counts of attempted murder. He remains in Land O'Lakes jail without bail.

The other alleged gunman, Ismael Alvarez Jr., 23, of 37154 Goldenrod Court in Dade City, was arrested Thursday on two charges of attempted murder. He is being held at Land O'Lakes jail without bail.

Neither of the arrested men would give a motive for the shooting, said sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll. He said all four men were friends at one time.

"Obviously there was a dispute between them," Doll said.

Doll declined to say whether the Chevy's driver is a suspect in the case because the investigation is ongoing.

"We know who it is," he said, "but we're not commenting further at this point."
