The search for suspects involved in a home invasion and shooting Monday in Rosewood continued as of Tuesday afternoon.

Investigators said Tuesday they have credible information the suspects have fled and are no longer in the Levy County area.

Two suspects posing as representatives of the Levy County Property Appraiser’s Office invaded a home in Rosewood at around 4:50 p.m. Monday. Levy County Sheriff Bobby McCallum said the suspects were reportedly shot at by a woman from the home who was previously tied up by the suspects and by another victim, who received hospital care but was reportedly not in serious condition, according to McCallum.

McCallum said a third person arrived at the home during the incident and also fired shots at the suspects. One of the suspects was possibly hit by one of the shots, said McCallum, who added that investigators didn’t know why the home was targeted.

A car driven by the suspects was found abandoned and burned overnight Monday in the Rocky Hammock area, approximately 8 miles south of Chiefland.
