The Pasco Sheriff's Office is investigating a home invasion robbery where the suspect was shot and ended up fleeing and crashing into a home.
The incident happened around 11 p.m. Wednesday night on the 6000 block of Alta Vista Lane in Port Richey.
Deputies said 38-year-old Anthony Capuano disguised with a mask and armed with a gun knocked on the door and demanded entry into the residence.
When resident 22-year-old Heidi Christophell refused to let him in, deputies said the Capuano shattered a front window and began to crawl inside.
Deputies said Christophell then ran to her bedroom and grabbed her boyfriend, 21-year-old Steven Brown's, handgun. She fired multiple rounds at the suspect and he fled from the residence.
Capuano was then seen fleeing the scene westbound on Alta Vista in a white Chevy Impala. He then crashed into a home on the 9000 block of El Camino Real.
He was transported to an area hospital with a gunshot wound and is currently listed in critical condition. Deputies said Capuano is a known gang member.
While deputies investigated the home invasion on Alta Vista, Brown returned home and was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to sell.
