Search for killer after Hudson man found dead in home

HUDSON (FOX 13) -

Pasco County deputies say they're searching for a killer today after a man was found murdered inside a home in Hudson.

It happened at 12206 Bear Claw Loop. Detectives have been at the scene since around 8 p.m. Sunday.

Neighbors say they heard an argument and called 911. Deputies found 26-year-old Francis Soto dead from a gunshot wound.

The sheriff says Soto was a drug dealer, and he said other people were in the house at the time.

Investigators believe Soto was associated with a gang at some point.

"Mr. Soto, he's a high probability victim, which means for the fact that when you're involved in drugs, when you're dealing, when you've had several arrests, when you're in the game, you're probably a higher probability that you're going to be a victim at some point in your life than somebody who is just innocent and minding their own business," said Sheriff Chris Nocco.

Deputies say they're working leads right now. They're hoping to release more information later.
