Pasco deputies looking for suspects in two home shootings

NEW PORT RICHEY — Deputies are looking for suspects in two separate shootings, after two houses on opposite corners of the county were riddled with bullets in two days.

The first shooting was about 8 p.m. Monday, Pasco County Sheriff's Office spokesman Kevin Doll said. A 21-year-old man was grazed in his left arm when bullets tore through the mobile home at 9247 Teak St. near Hudson.

Doll said other people, including a small child, were in the house at the time.

Then about 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, someone fired several shots at another home at 5250 Poppy St. in the Sandalwood Mobile Home Park in Zephyrhills. Three people were in the home, but no one was injured.

Deputies do not have any suspects and do not believe the shootings are related, Doll said.

Anyone with information about the shootings can report tips to the Sheriff's Office at 1-800-706-2488.
