A mother and her 6-year-old daughter were shot in the head in their sleep during a home invasion, a Florida sheriff said.

Nocco said a man who lives in the home had had an “alteration” with the suspects at an “adult facility” in Tampa about a week earlier. The man and the suspects later became involved in a road rage incident, he said. The sheriff’s office did not respond to questions from McClatchy News about what type of establishment it was or the nature of the altercation.

They clashed and the suspects shot the father in the head in the driveway, Nocco said. The suspects then entered the home and began “screaming,” looking for the man they had been in an altercation with in Tampa, Nocco said. He was not home at the time.


The suspects entered the home’s master bedroom and shot the man’s girlfriend and her 6-year-old daughter in the head as they slept in bed, Nocco said. All three victims survived but were in critical condition after the targeted attack, he said. No arrests have been made, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.
