Hillsborough deputies are looking for two men suspected of an early morning home invasion.
TAMPA – Deputies are searching for two men who broke into a Tampa home early Wednesday (April 24) morning, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
The two masked men, who spoke Spanish, were described as medium build and medium height. One is wounded after the homeowner fired at the two.
Deputies said they were called about 3:11 a.m. to a home in the 7000 block of Lawnview Court for a report of a robbery/home invasion. Once on scene, the occupants told deputies that two suspects broke in
the front door and came into their home.
The homeowner, who had armed himself with a shotgun, confronted them and fired one round, which hit one of the suspects. The suspects ran out of the home and were last seen heading eastbound toward Hanley Road in what appeared to be a Dodge Dakota or a similar model vehicle.
