Deputies: Pasco man shot at parents' house

Pasco County sheriff's deputies say a man shot at the New Port Richey home of his parents, who were scheduled to testify against him in an upcoming criminal case.

At 4 a.m. Thursday, deputies went to 9331 Teak St. in response to a shooting report. There, they found casings in the driveway and bullet holes in the home.

Deputies said the couple living in the home identified the suspect as Michael Barone, 21, the son of the woman and stepson of the man.

They had reported him for a May 28 incident where he entered the home  to borrow clothing but allegedly removed multiple items without permission.

The stolen items include a simunition air riffle worth $599, a gun sight  worth $59, a hunting knife worth $79, three sixteen round simunition magazines  worth $111, three boxes of .177 simunitions  worth $87, and an urn containing the victim`s deceased husband's ashes worth $500.

On June 29,  deputies said, Barone threatened to kill the mother if charges were carried through.

Barone has been charged with tampering with a witness, shooting into an occupied structure, being a felon in possession of a weapon and grand theft. He is being held on $75,000.
