Published Sep. 10, 2005

Police were searching Friday for a man they believed shot another man and fled.

The victim, who is in his early 20s, was shot in the abdomen and flown to St. Joseph's Hospital, where he was whisked into the operating room. He was described as being in serious to critical condition.

The shooting occurred about 6:30 p.m. in the yard of 24458 Dorsey Smith Road, east of Brooksville.

Hernando County Sheriff's Office was investigating and searching for the gunman, but authorities released limited information Friday evening, other than to say he was driving a two-door, champagne-colored, new-model Lincoln.
