Detectives are looking for three suspects in a violent home invasion that left a mother and her 14-year-old daughter hospitalized.
However, the circumstances around the shooting and home invasion remain unclear. It happened overnight at 20045 Valdez Lane in Land O' Lakes.
Deputies tell us the woman and daughter do not live at the home, rather across the street. They said they were checking on some noises they heard in the house.
At the time of the home invasion, deputies say seven people were inside the home.
The girl and her mother were both shot in the abdomen; the girl also suffered a wound to the leg. Deputies say they are expected to recover from their injuries. The mother underwent surgery to remove the bullet.
They were airlifted from the scene at St. Joseph's Hospital.
With so many people at the scene, a description of the suspects may be released soon. Detectives are actively searching for them now.
