Three Confirmed Dead in Separate Brooksville Shootings, One Suspect in Custody, a Second At Large

BROOKSIVLLE – In the aftermath of last night’s terrifying home invasion shooting on Azen Loop, officials have now confirmed that at least two people are dead, and one person suffered “serious injuries.” Officials say 16-year-old Taneta Morrell and Brena Marshall were both killed inside 27378 Azen Loop. Adolphus Washington was also shot and suffered life-threatening injuries, says Sheriff Al Nienhuis. Washington was airlifted to a trauma center for treatment.

After preparing for several hours, SWAT entered 27199 Thorncrest Ave and apprehended the suspect without incident. Sheriff Al Neinhuis says the suspect is facing several felony charges and that he is the prime suspect in the shooting.

Officials have not confirmed if the shooting that occurred behind Coney Island Drive just an hour before the Azen Loop shooting are related, but some witnesses say it strange coincidence.

Brooksville Police responded to Coney Island Drive Inn, located at 1112 E. Jefferson Street, after receiving reports of a shooting. Owner John Lee tells RNRF that his employees witnessed a black vehicle and a white vehicle parked in a dimly lit area behind the business, around 8:00 p.m. Lee says a white male exited the black car, retrieved something from the trunk and then entered the white car. A few minutes later, witnesses say the white male exited the vehicle and began shooting into the vehicle before fleeing the scene. The driver of the white vehicle drove to Bayfront Health Brooksville on Cortez Blvd, where a shooting victim was dropped off at the Emergency Room.

Brooksville Police announced today that the victim, 21-year-old De’Aundre Roberts, later died from his injuries.

  • It’s not to hard to find out who he is! Just go to the HCSO page and look at the arrests on 1/24/18. Look at the one on Thorncrest Ave. The house number is a few digits difference. They probably put the wrong address on purpose. My guess would be, that’s him. I could be wrong but I doubt it. The house’s are a few apart.

    • you are right about him being involved, he was the one who ran cause he had warrants and knew the police were in the area but he was not the shooter. shooter is still at large, cause they tested the suspect’s clothes you’re talking about, for gun powder or residue and none came back. the young girl was shot in the face, he would have had gun powder come back at him. he’s involved but not the shooter.

    • because the kid they have in custody is not the shooter. the did test and he had no fun powder or residue on any of his clothes. he ran and hid cause he was in the area and has warrants for him, but he is not the shooter. the shooter is still at large. and the shooter from the Coney Island was a white kid from Spring Hill in a black Taurus. get your information before you check someone

      • Son, Taking to the forum against stupidity will not help you. The internet has a trove of ignorant, hate filled individuals who consistently hide behind keyboards and are fueled by the sparks that they cause in a tide of 0’s and 1’s… You need to step aside and not fuel that, be bigger and better than that and take care of yourself, your family and friends during this tragic time in your life. I am sorry for your loss.
