Hernando authorities identify men involved in Tuesday altercation in Spring Hill

SPRING HILL — The Hernando County Sheriff's Office has identified the three men injured in a shooting incident earlier in the week.

Deputies responded to a report of a shooting about 5:40 a.m. Tuesday at 8129 Wooden Drive and found the injured men: William Moore, 29, Michael Silver, 45, and Roy Silver, 32. At least one man was shot, but the Sheriff's Office has refused to provide additional details. The incident started with an argument, detectives said.

All three men were taken to local hospitals with injuries that officials said were not life-threatening. Both Michael and Roy Silver remained hospitalized on Thursday, and detectives have not yet been able to interview all of the men involved. No arrests have been made.

The home is owned by Florida Low Income Housing Associates, a group that provides low-cost, affordable housing to residents of rural Florida.

State records show Moore was arrested in 2005 on a misdemeanor battery charge that was later dropped, and acquitted in 2011 of felony battery. He was convicted for resisting arrest last year after violating probation with a DUI arrest. He pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of reckless driving.

Michael Silver was convicted in July on charges of petty theft and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription. Roy Silver was arrested in 2007 on a disorderly conduct charge that was later dropped.
