A 38-year-old Bay area man is facing attempted murder charges following a shooting in Spring Hill Friday afternoon.
Bonnel Azemar is being held at the Hernando County Jail on a bond of $70,000. He is facing one count of aggravated assault with a firearm and one count of attempted murder.
According to a Hernando County Sheriff's Office report deputies were dispatched to the 6400 block of Spring Hill Dr. just after 5:30 p.m. in response to a shots fired call.
When they arrived on scene they found a white male later identified as Derick Wayne Vassar laying in the front yard of a residence with a gunshot wound to the back.
The 34-year-old victim was transported to a local trauma center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Another victim and several witnesses identified Azemar as the shooter.
They advised deputies he fled the scene in a white Dodge Ram pick-up truck. The second victim – 26-year-old Danielle Marvel – was not injured during the incident.
Deputies searched for the suspect but were unable to locate him. During the overnight and early morning hours detectives learned that Azemar was at his girlfriend's residence in Brooksville.
Just after 10 a.m. Saturday morning he was apprehended without incident.
Azemar has one prior brush with law enforcement in Hernando County. In October he was arrested on domestic violence and trespassing charges.
Last month's arrest also occurred at the home of his Brooksville girlfriend according to jail records.
