Spring Hill woman arrested in shootings; no one injured

SPRING HILL — A 39-year-old Spring Hill woman is behind bars after a shooting rampage Friday damaged a business and a home but caused no injuries.

Jayna Maria Delvecchio of Holly Springs Drive faces charges of attempted second degree murder and shooting into a building. She is being held at the Hernando County jail in lieu of bond.

According to Sheriff's Office reports, she went to the Staples office supply store on U.S. 19 and tried to throw a cinder block through a glass window. She then planned on tossing in her computer with a message on the keyboard stating "f--- you."

The brick failed to break the glass, so she pulled out a handgun and fired five shots into the window. She threw in her computer and left, reports state.

Later in the night, she drove to a residence on Malone Avenue to confront a former boyfriend. A different tenant came to the door, but didn't open it after he saw her standing with a handgun outside. When no one answered, she fired four to six shots before driving away. The bullets barely missed the tenant, who came to the door to try to get her car's license plate number, reports state.

Early Saturday, deputies caught up with Delvecchio after the Staples manager identified her as a recent problematic customer. In an interview, she confessed to the shootings.

John Frank can be reached at or (352) 754-6114.
