RIVERVIEW (HCSO) – On January 25, 2013, at approximately 11 p.m., deputies received a 911 call in reference to shots fired at 5219 Madison Lake Circle in Riverview. When deputies arrived on scene they discovered a deceased 18-year-old female inside the residence. At that time detectives with the Criminal Investigation Division were notified and responded to the scene. Detectives had to write a search warrant and were unable to get inside the residence until approximately 4 a.m. on January 26, 2013.

The 18-year-old victim has been identified as Sara Gonzalez.

At the time of the shooting the only two other individuals that were inside the residence were the victim’s 17-year-old boyfriend and her 16-year-old brother (both reside at that address). Detectives are interviewing both the brother and the boyfriend and there have been several changes to the stories that they have provided to detectives.

During the course of the search so far detectives have located two weapons on scene. The investigation continues.
