RIVERVIEW, FL (WFLA) — A teenager was shot multiple times during a home invasion early Friday morning at his family’s home in the 8700 block of Deep Maple Drive in Riverview, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office says.
Deputies say the 14-year-old victim was home alone around 2:45 a.m. when he heard noises downstairs. When he went to check out what was happening, he was approached by two males wearing masks. At that time, the suspects shot the victim four times, deputies say.
The teen was rushed to Tampa General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Deputies say the suspects took some electronics and fled out the back sliding doors going through the neighbors yard and left in a light green VW beetle.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is now searching for two male suspects connected to the shooting. Specific descriptions have not been released. Here are surveillance photos of the VW beetle from HCSO:
