On January 7, 2013 at approximately 3:36 a.m. deputies responded to the Ruskin Inn in reference to a robbery/shooting that had occurred. The hotel clerk, Shanna Borovich was sitting in the lobby of the hotel when she received a call from an unidentified male. The caller stated that he was staying at the hotel and could not sleep due to all the noise outside of his room. The clerk went down the hallway to the rear of the hotel, opened the door to the pool area where she was confronted by the armed suspect. The suspect forced the clerk outside and told her to walk toward a wooded area near the hotel. As she was walking, she heard gunshots and was told to lie down on the ground and stay there. She then saw him walk to the front of the hotel and saw him a few seconds later walking out with something. The suspect had gone back into the hotel and took money from the business.
The victim called 911 and was transported to Tampa General Hospital where she is being treated for an injury due to a bullet grazing her head.
