Pasco woman shot in head while sleeping; investigation underway

- Pasco Sheriff's deputies are investigating a shooting at a Lacoochee trailer park Monday morning. This is the second shooting in the trailer park in two weeks. 

Deputies received a call at 2:41 a.m. that 50-year-old Teresa Thomas was shot in the head by an unknown gunman.  She was asleep in the residence when the shooting occurred.

Investigators believe the shooter was outside the residence.  

Thomas was treated and released from the hospital.

This is the same trailer park where a man was shot in the head last week at 19140 U.S. 301, but deputies say it  does not appear to be related to that incident.

The woman was transported to a local hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
