One Dead Two Injured in Early Morning Bar Shooting

SPRING HILL – Detectives with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office are investigating an early morning shooting that left one man dead and two others injured – including the suspect.

According to officials, around 1:34 a.m., deputies responded to Bamboos Bar & Eatery, 4564 Commercial Way, after reports of a shooting at that location. When deputies arrived on the scene, they discovered that three men had been shot, including the suspect who surrendered to deputies peacefully.

Officials say a disturbance inside the bar led to the shooting but the exact motive is still under investigation.

One man died at the scene as a result of his injuries, while the second shooting victim was airlifted to Bayonet Point Hospital for treatment. The shooter was also transported to Bayonet Point, for what sources say was a gunshot wound to the leg.

The names of the men involved are not being released at this time.

We will continue to bring more on this story as it develops.

  • I dont really like bamboos myself,however some of the comments posted are just stupid,so what if a bar does a sink or swim night to drum up business u dont like it dont dont do it,its a business and its the owners descision what promotion or specials they will have
    ,people need to be responsible for themselfs,and someone said its becouse they play hip hop,so now if a person listens to hip hop that makes them a gangbanger seriously,its a bar im not saying this is acceptabe but it happens,people rob gas stations at gun point,should gas stations be shut down Also someone else was crying about the type of car the owner drives number one i doubt it was a bentley convertabe but so the f#€k what i mean if she droove a pinto are you saying that this would not of happened,unless she stole the car i just dont see what that has to do with anything.this story is about a person that lost their life due to another stupid person,it dont matter where it happen,look at the scumbag retired deputy that shot a man in the movies for texing his daughter before the movie started,should we close down theaters becouse of that?
    R.i.p thoughts and prayers for familys involved.

  • Community cleansing at its best!

  • I think a question which must be asked is:
    How many of these bar bashing aliases are actually multiple aliases of another Spring Hill bar owner/employee in competition for the 20 something/30 something partying folks who are out trying to mate/hook up and spend a lot of money?
    Someone trying to take a business advantage of this terrible situation?
    Inquiring minds want to know.
    Not much of a drinker myself, but do frequent a lot of local area bars on this side of the county as a pool player.
    What’s being said about Jerseys and Bamboos is mostly exaggeration and some kind of sour grapes.
    There are ulterior motives underlying some of what I’ve read here.
    Shame on you.

  • That dope supply house next to Jerseys got drugs n guns for sale. Need a dope pipe. Got it. Free with a purchase. The owner convicted dope pusher n child molester.

  • The shooter tried twice to get away from the people trying to fight him before being pulled by the collar on his shirt and kicked out of the bar. The bouncer kicked him out after a group of people beat HIS ass. And the group of people trying to fight him chased after him. The person who started the fight had sat at the bar all night and drank, he was wasted. They should have never continued to go after him and the bouncer should have been paying more attention. I’ve never seen a worse bouncer in my life.

  • Truth being , when the owners of these Bars (Jerseys and Bamboos) are the best drunks in the Bar they own, They will bring scum in, It just happens!

  • Oh so the **** talk this week isn’t about a disease ****** filled strip club, lmao now it’s bars to! Does that mean we should close down a gas station or a church or a mall when these happen there to? Get real people. This has nothing to do with the establishments in our county, it’s the trashy PEOPLE! Get them the hell out, stop waiting for convicted felons and thugs to kill someone over drugs, lock them all up !

  • Seriously, people. You had to know it was just a matter of time! These types of incidents have been going on all around us for years: Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco, Orange, Sumter, Citrus. Did you think it wouldn’t invade the sanctified borders of Hernando County??? Get out of your glass houses and off your ivory pedestals and get a grip. Society is in the toilet. Until we stop molly-coddling juvenile delinquents and discipline our children it’s only going to get worse. Stop laying blame on others and clean up your own houses and backyards.

  • Yep bamboo has a bad rep. But there was a shooting going south on little rd just a few months ago. Drugs are everywhere, no matter where you go. Why talk so much crap. Remember, he has a family too. Don’t take life for granted

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 1:48 pm
  • We all know stuff happens everywhere. The difference is when someone was hurt at karma. Rob made a personal choice to help that girl out by looking at video, by working with a LEO, by just being there and helping the victim and preventing future disturbances. Not by doing cocaine on her hands and knees among the other drunken stuff she does. So yeah fights happen at karma but not as much and u deff have more protection then the POS at bamboos door like Linda’s son. The family and the establishment are a joke. Right along w papa jerseys is a drunk too who doesn’t deserve to OWN A bar, he needs AA. I CAN’T STAND HOW HE TREATS HIS WIFE.

    On that note. Not everyone who goes into bamboos is a bad person but there deff are a LOTTTTTTTT of MFS who don’t care about life or even a future for that matter.

    If spring hill doesn’t deserve bars… why does tampa? Why does hudson new port richey orlando Miami. Pick one. Why do any of them deserve to have bars…

  • I gotta get out of this **** whole

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 1:04 pm
  • Please don’t shut down Bamboos. Then their crowd will go to my favorite bars and ruin it. They should make a gofund me if they need money to stay open.

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 12:43 pm
  • It’s the people… Trash people all over…and btw…The CWP does you no good in the bar cowboy, because that’s one of the few places you can’t carry regardless.

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 12:40 pm
  • What do you expect from the thug and WANNABE gangsta crowd????…useless punks…the reasons they carry is because they couldn’t fight themselves out of a wet paper bag…

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 12:38 pm
  • Gee maybe alcohol played a part the most important part at that.

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 12:25 pm
  • Just the beginning of the end!
    CWP, for My safety.

  • This community is going down with speed..I’ve been here over 20 years and back in the day when flamingo’s and Jerry’s place was open it was fun! Hardly no violence at all..Good thing my kids are grown and don’t visit these god awful places any more

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 11:37 am
  • To: Ignore the haters…you must be delusional…when you create “drink till you drop” unlimited booze nights that attract and yes…enable these kind of situations you get these “random acts” as you like to phrase it. There is a lack of will on law enforcement to crack down on these sort of establishments, and that is the problem.

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 11:06 am
  • Damn i love bamboos and linda is a great person…. Cant blame some random act of ignorance on her and her fine establishment smh…

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 10:27 am
    • When most of your patrons resemble a certain image, that is a direct reflection on the owners and management of the place… They Choose the element that comes in.. the music that is played.. their drink specials.. dresscode etc… so, yes you most certainly can.

      Friday, 11 March 2016, 1:04 pm
  • Jennifer, movie theatres don’t creates nights that encourage and invite drugs dealers and lowlifes to get hammered out of their minds on unlimited booze, deal and do drugs. Yes the world is always a dangerous place…but some establishments enable this kind of criminal activity and trouble.

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 10:27 am
  • Listen up people if they shirt down Bamboo’s then all the druggies will wanna hang at your favorite establishment. So keep bamboos open so they all stay there! Its good to know all the pill,meth,and crackheads are in one spot!

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 10:25 am
  • The bars that have problems invite this kind of element with sink or swims(which should be banned)…and creating nights that lure the drug dealers and thugs. The Pickled Parrot has had the same issues in the past with the “Drug Dealing” hip-hop night they held every week, they had fights, car jackings etc etc etc….

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 10:19 am
  • Spring Hill is not a ghetto! People can move out of the ghetto but you cant get the ghetto thinking out of their hearts and souls… Report drug dealing to your local police… Flush them all out!

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 9:57 am
  • Lol. When people are saying the bar owner is on her hands and knees.. well it won’t be long before the bar closes anyways!!

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 9:56 am
  • The owner of bamboos use to own mermaids which is two plaza down. There was always violence there as well. Since leaving that plaza there hasn’t been no fights. Yet there is a good bar on the corner. Hmmm what’s wrong with the picture here? It’s not the place but who runs it! I stopped going there do to the new dj playing which brought bad crowds.

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 9:43 am
  • Y’all just think it’s these “bars” or this “town” but it isnt just happening here, this very thing is happening around the whole US right now. OPEN YOUR EYES!!!! The World Isn’t Safe Anymore

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 9:42 am
  • The Owner is the Biggest COKE HEAD! I’ve seen her on her hands and knees looking for a sack she dropped. I was like WTF????????

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 9:01 am
  • Opinions are like ******* everyone has one. Bottom line **** like this happens everyday all over the world.

  • Its not so much about the bar being ****** its the fact some one got shot at the bar

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 8:14 am
  • Uh “me”.. Karma is NO BETTER! I used to go there all the time and there were fights like EVERY weekend. And the security is USELESS because they don’t do shit about the fights. Spring Hill doesn’t deserve to have bars, the people that go out to these places don’t know how to act.

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 8:03 am
    • This is BS and completely untrue.. There are RARELY fights at Karma. Compared to any bar in the area. And the security is ON IT quickly and they get the problem out so the rest of the night can go smoothly.

      Friday, 11 March 2016, 12:44 pm
  • No surprise here, Bamboo’s is a dump and a reflection of it’s owner. When the giant Spring Hill bowl flushes and swirls, it all floods into this bar and “eatery”.

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 7:40 am
  • Just recently the owner of this not-so-fine establishment was on here commenting about what a nice place Bamboo’s is and that it isn’t a drug haven dump. Well, looks like we all know now and she has to deal with this. We are going to find out the dispute was over some petty $10 bag of dust and involved some real winners. I’ll wait for her incoherent, all over the place response to this along with a lack of responsibility for giving these scumbags a place to sell/buy drugs.

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 7:38 am
  • Shut bamboos down. And let Rob Karma reopen it to a better classier establishment. He don’t have the ratchet *** problems the drunk OWNERS at bamboos and jerseys have.

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 7:34 am
  • Thugs and gangbangers always causing 27th o s **** over there. Place needs to be shut down to much **** goes on there

    Friday, 11 March 2016, 7:17 am
    • Ironic you use the name “Leo” when I know you mean Law Enforcement officer.. But the one who died was named Leo. He was a good man. Had a lot of friends that really cared about him.

  • Its crazy that u can’t go out and have a social drink without having to worry about stuff like this.. Spring hill is getting ridiculous.. Just getting worse and worse.. I feel awful for the family of the deceased and the injured…
