Shooting victims released from hospital

Suspect still at large

Live Oak —

Two victims who received multiple injuries in a double shooting last week have been released from the hospital and are recovering, according to Suwannee County Sheriff Chief Deputy Ron Colvin. The sheriff’s office is still investigating and searching for the suspect responsible for the shooting.

Colvin said on Monday, June 16, at approximately 4:30 a.m., an unknown suspect entered a home in Wayne Frier’s Mobile Home Park, located at 12910 US 90, Lot 123, Live Oak. The suspect then entered a bedroom where the two victims, Heather Landacre and Michael Hughes, were sleeping and began shooting, striking the victims multiple times, Colvin said. The suspect then fled the scene. 

Colvin said it is unknown at this time how many shots were fired inside the bedroom.

“We believe the suspect entered through a window because a window was open and the screen was removed,” Colvin said. 

The suspect is described as a black male, small build, approximately 18-25 years of age, and was wearing some type of bandanna over most of his face.  

Colvin said the motive of the suspect has not yet been determined.

The Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office is asking for anyone who has any source of information to give them a call at 386-362-2222.
