A Hudson man was shot in the leg during a home invasion early today and deputies are looking for a suspect, the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said.
But investigators aren’t getting much cooperation from the victim, 47-year-old James Miller, who was shot inside his home on the 9000 block of Ogalala Street, in the Griffin Park area, Sheriff Chris Nocco said.
Miller was taken to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The sheriff’s office said it received a call about the shooting about 2:15 a.m. A man wearing a black mask came into Miller’s home, demanded money and shot him in the leg, Nocco said. He said it was hard to have much sympathy for Miller, though, because of his lack of cooperation.
Miller has a lengthy criminal history that includes drug arrests, the sheriff’s office reported.
The sheriff’s office reported that the suspect in the shooting is a white man in his 30s or 40s. He is between 5-feet, 8-inches and 6-feet tall. In addition to the mask, he was wearing a baseball cap and dark clothing.
