Deputies seek two men in home robbery, shooting

Hillsborough sheriff's deputies were searching Monday night for two men they say shot another man and robbed a home at 7805 50th St. N.

Deputies said Nabil Laboy, 31, of Tampa had driven to the residence earlier in the evening to visit an acquaintance. As he neared the door, two men armed with handguns approached him and made him knock on the door.

A second victim, 24-year-old Kermit Kruger, answered the door. The two robbers barged into the home, stole jewelry and cash, then fled. But not before they shot Laboy in the leg, deputies said.

Laboy was taken to Tampa General Hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.

The robbers fled on foot, and no description of them was available except that one of them had dreadlocks.
