The victim was walking along Spring Haven Loop near the clubhouse when the shooting happened.

After shooting the victim, the suspect then ran east across Mariner Boulevard evading capture. A search was begun which ended this afternoon without incident at Fitzgerald's apartment. First responders flew the woman to a trauma center for treatment last night. She remains in stable condition and is expected to recover.

The suspect and victim are acquainted, deputies said.
