Dade City police: Teen shot into two occupied homes


Teen charged with shooting into homes

A 17-year-old boy was arrested Friday night after, police say, he shot into two mobile homes with people in them.

Around 11 p.m., the boy, whose name is being withheld due to his age, used a 9mm handgun, a Dade City Police Department report states, firing at the homes at 38353 and 38354 Lake Ave. The bullet went through the window of one mobile home and into the next, police said. Two people were in each home at the time. No one was injured.

Capt. David Duff called the shooting a "random act of stupidity."

Police tracked down the boy near the homes and arrested him on a charge of shooting into an occupied dwelling. He was taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center.
