A verbal argument may have led to the shooting of two men in the parking lot of a bar in Spring Hill.
Hernando County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) Public Relations Manager Denise Moloney said that around 1:30 a.m. on June 28, emergency operators received several calls reporting that numerous gunshots had been fired in the parking lot of the Sunset Lounge, 5431 Spring Hill Drive in Spring Hill, and that at least one person had been shot.
At the scene, responding deputies found two men in the bar’s parking lot who had sustained gunshot wounds.
Witnesses told the deputies that after the incident, the alleged shooter drove away from the scene.
“Detectives do not believe the shooting was a random act of violence as several witnesses stated the victims and suspect were engaged in conversation before the incident occurred.,”Moloney said.
While deputies work to identify the shooter, the general probe into the incident goes on.
