Stray bullet injures Palm Harbor man watching TV

PALM HARBOR — Shots rang out on Lennox Road in the Gleneagles subdivision Sunday night and a man watching television inside his home was struck by a stray bullet, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Cecilia Barreda said the man injured inside his home, who was not immediately identified, was transported to a hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Barreda said the shots rang out around 6:40 p.m. more than 100 feet from the residence where the man was shot. She said the shooter is believed to have fired at another vehicle and missed.

"They were shooting at the vehicles and one of the fired shots penetrated a wall and hit an individual watching the television," Barreda said.

The suspect was still at large Sunday night and was seen by witnesses driving a white, four-door compact pickup truck with chrome rims and blue LED lights on its dash, Barreda said.
