At 4:13 pm, on Sunday September 25th, our dispatchers received a 911 call saying there was someone shooting a gun and chasing another male at 25600 61st Ave Ct E. A woman called in and said a male was trying to break into her home and broke her window.
Deputies arrived on scene and discovered a man deceased just inside of the back sliding door of the woman’s home.
Deputies were told the shooting occurred at a house across the street and then continued into the neighbors back yard. Deputies were told the suspect ran off into the woods, so they called for our Air Ops Unit and a K9 to assist with the search.
After a long search through the woods, deputies were unable to locate the suspect.
Detectives and Forensic Investigators responded to document the scene and collect evidence.
The victim has not been identified, but we know he did not live at either home. The suspect does not live in the area, but is associated with the home where the shooting first started.
No one else was injured during this shooting.
