2 People Hospitalized & Critically Injured In Double Shooting In Palm Coast

By on November 13, 2017 in WNDB News

Palm Coast, FL – The Flagler County Sheriff’s (FCSO) Office is investigating a double shooting in Palm Coast that sent two men to the hospital in critical condition early Monday morning.

Deputies responded to a home at 28 Seamanship Trail in Palm Coast just after 12 AM Monday after reports of multiple shots being fired. Deputies found one victim at the home who had been shot twice outside the home. At the same time, Florida Hospital Flagler reported that the hospital had one victim that had been dropped off with one gunshot wound. FCSO says that the shootings were connected.

The two men were transferred to Halifax Health in Daytona and remain in the hospital in critical condition, but their injuries are not life-threatening. Officials are still investigating the case. Deputies found a gun that they believe was used in the shootings, and they also found narcotics in the home in plain view, according to FCSO.

The investigation had been slightly delayed since one of the victims had given officials a false name, but deputies have released the names of the two victims. One of the men who was shot was 18-year-old Tristan George, who lived at the home with his mother and a roommate. 21-year-old Michael McRoberts Jr. was the gunshot victim who had given the hospital and deputies a false name. Officials later discovered that McRoberts is wanted for violation of probation and grand theft in Flagler County.

FCSO has not named any suspects at this time. “At this time, we do not believe anybody in the community is in danger. We believe this was a very focused shooting incident,” says Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly.

Deputies are also searching for a person of interest in this case. Brooklynn Marino dropped McRoberts off at Florida Hospital Flagler in a Honda Accord on Monday, according to FCSO. She did not give hospital staff her name, and deputies are searching for her since they believe she has more information about the case.  The Honda has been located and towed to the Sheriff’s Office for processing.  Marino is now thought to be driving a silver 2013 Nissan Altima with tag IISS74.
