Dispatch received a call at approximately 1:17pm regarding a domestic situation on Turbak Drive where one female suspect allegedly shot at her boyfriend. The victim was not struck by any rounds and ran to a neighbor’s home to seek help. When deputies arrived on scene, they confirmed the safety of the victim, and proceeded to make contact through a window with the suspect, who is still inside the home.
After several attempts, and the suspect continually refusing to come outside, the Charlotte County Sheriff’s SWAT, Aviation and Crisis Negotiation teams have been called to the scene.
More updates will be provided as soon as they are available. At this time, the scene is still extremely active and we ask for the public to avoid the area and anyone living on Turbak Drive to remain indoors.
