The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said the suspect went into the garage around 5:27 a.m. with a hoodie and mask on and discharged a firearm, missing their intended victim.

The video shows the victim walking back into his home through the garage as the suspect quickly pops into the garage, fires shots, and then leaves.

Deputies also said the suspect was driving a white SUV.

“The audacity of the suspect entering someone’s home is appalling,” Sheriff Chad Chronister said. “Our deputies are diligently working to find this perpetrator and hold him accountable for his crimes. If you have any information, please contact HCSO.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s department at 813-247-8200.
