Live Oak —
Two victims were shot early Monday morning after a suspect broke into their home, entered a bedroom and began firing multiple shots, according to the Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office.
According to SCSO Chief Deputy Ron Colvin, on Monday, June 16, at approximately 4:30 a.m., an unknown suspect entered a home in Wayne Frier’s Mobile Home Park, located at 12910 US 90, Lot 123, Live Oak. The suspect then entered a bedroom where the two victims were sleeping, and began shooting, striking the victims, Colvin said. The suspect then fled the scene.
Colvin said it is unknown at this time how many shots were fired inside the bedroom.
“We believe the suspect entered through a window because a window was open and the screen was removed,” Colvin said. “We also know there were other family members at home during the time of the shooting.”
One of the victims was taken to a local hospital by ambulance and the other was transported by life flight. Colvin said both were shot multiple times and are stable.
The suspect is described as a black male, small build, approximately 18-25 years of age, and was wearing some type of bandanna over most of his face.
Colvin said the motive of the suspect has not yet been determined, and it is also unknown if any items were removed from the home.
The Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office is asking for anyone who has any source of information to give them a call at 386-362-2222.
