On July 18, 2019, at 10:25 pm, deputies responded to a reported shooting in the 19600 block of Wearyall Hill Ln. A woman had been shot twice in her home. Evidence indicates the shooter was in the victim’s back yard and shot through one of her windows.  
 
The woman told deputies she believed the shooter to be former boyfriend Gregory Horton, against whom she has a protective order. An eyewitness confirmed the identity of the suspect.
