A suspect with an extensive criminal history is facing a variety of charges after he allegedly shot a Largo woman Friday night during a botched robbery attempt.
Trevon Lamar Griffin, 19, was booked into the Pinellas County jail where he is being held without bond. The facility should be very familiar to the teenager - he's been arrested five times in less than 12 months.
According to a Pinellas County Sheriff's Office report deputies responded to 3744 135th Ave. North just after 7 p.m. in response to a shots fired call.
Witnesses reported hearing a woman's scream for help in the Coral Way neighborhood. A deputy patrolling the area also heard what he thought was a gunshot.
At the scene responding units discovered Brieonne Danielle Roiland bleeding from a gunshot wound to the neck. Emergency medical personnel treated her at the scene and then transported her to a nearby hospital.
Roiland's condition is not known.
A perimeter was set up and the suspect was apprehended while attempting to run through a field not far from the crime scene.
Investigators believe the suspect attempted to rob the 30-year-old victim at gunpoint, the gun discharged striking Roiland. Griffin immediately fled on foot.
The suspect, who is no stranger to law enforcement, is facing a variety of charges including attempted first-degree murder, attempted armed robbery and discharging a firearm in public.
Since May Griffin has been booked into the Pinellas County Jail on five occasions for a variety of crimes including drug possession, grand theft and leaving the scene of a crash involving property damage.
