Woman killed in shooting at Riverview mobile home park

RIVERVIEW — A woman was shot to death late Friday at a Riverview mobile home park, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies responded to 5219 Madison Lake Circle within the Madison Lake Estates Mobile Home Park at about 11 p.m. after a 911 call indicated shots had been fired.

Inside, deputies found the body of Sara Gonzalez, 18.

On Saturday, detectives interviewed Gonzalez's 17-year-old boyfriend and her 16-year-old brother, who both live at the address. There were several changes to each of their stories, deputies said.

A search of the mobile home revealed two weapons, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Gonzalez's older sister told Bay News 9 that her sister was a happy person who knew how to make people laugh.

"She was a good aunt," Nelly Gonzalez said. "My kids are going to miss her. She was the best sister. Nobody would have expected it would have happened to her."
