INVERNESS, FL – On January 14, 2022, at approximately 9 P.M., deputies responded to a residence in the area of East Dawson Drive, Inverness, FL in reference to a shooting.

Upon arrival, deputies observed a victim with apparent gunshot wounds lying on the driveway. Shortly thereafter, EMS arrived and began treating the victim. Subsequently, the victim was air-lifted to Marion County for medical treatment and was later pronounced deceased at the hospital. Witnesses told deputies the suspected shooter tried to break into their home before he fled on foot. Through witness statements, deputies were able to identify the suspect as 29-year-old Daniel Arthur Redman, who was just released from prison on January 9, 2022.

Deputies began searching for the suspect with the assistance of a K-9 unit. Within minutes, the suspect was tracked to a motor home located approximately a quarter of a mile away. Upon contact, the suspect was observed holding another victim, with obvious injuries, as hostage. Deputies gave verbal commands for the suspect to release the hostage, which he eventually complied with. Once the hostage was safe, deputies ordered the suspect to show them his hands. The suspect refused to comply and reached behind his back towards his waistband. After failing to comply with verbal commands, fearing for the safety of others, the suspect was shot one time. Deputies immediately secured the suspect and rendered first aid, until he was transported to the hospital for medical treatment.
