RIVERVIEW (FOX 13) - Dramatic video from inside a Riverview home shows a shootout between three home invasion suspects and the drug dealers who live there, deputies say.
The footage, released Friday by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, was taken inside a home on Burgess Hill Drive just after midnight on March 27. It shows three people snooping around the living room, before flashes of gunfire startle them.
The loud shots echo through the video, drowning out the suspects’ frantic shuffling.
The trio rush to finish ransacking the room and at least one of them appears to return fire.
Deputies responded to the scene and say they found a kilogram of marijuana, two guns, and a “large sum” of cash. Four people inside were arrested on drug charges, but detectives are still trying to identify the three home invaders.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 813-247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS.
