2 charged in Carrollwood slaying, home invasion
A home invasion victim fatally shot one of the invaders Sunday in Carrollwood, and investigators have since arrested two other people involved in the crime, Hillsborough County deputies said.
Victim Anthony Dipaolo, 23, shot and killed suspect Jonathan Fernandez, 23, sheriff’s spokeswoman Debbie Carter said. Fernandez died at the scene.
Dipaolo was shot in the left leg.
Though Dipaolo fatally shot Fernandez, two other home invasion suspects also have been charged with murder: Willie Goff and Katherine Schaeffer. Sheriff’s spokeswoman Debbie Carter said they were charged because their involvement in the offense led to the fatal shooting.
Goff, 29, of Tampa, was arrested Sunday afternoon and charged with second-degree murder and robbery-home invasion.
Schaeffer, 24, of Tampa, was arrested about 2:30 a.m. today at the Best Value Inn in Panama Beach. She was arrested by Panama City police and charged with second-degree murder, robbery-home invasion and aggravated battery.
Fernandez, of 4401 Cedar Cypress St., was dead when Hillsborough County deputies arrived at 4401 Hudson Lane about 4:30 a.m. Sunday.
Dipaolo was treated and released from a local hospital, Carter said.
Goff was arrested at 4:40 p.m. Sunday at 11500 N. Dale Mabry Highway. He remains in jail; no bail has been set.
Deputies are working to identify other suspects, a sheriff’s office release states.
