VSO Seeking Pair Who Tried to Break Into Occupied Motel Room


Volusia sheriff’s detectives are searching for a woman and a man – who was shot – after they tried to break into a room at a Motel 6 in Daytona Beach that turned out to be occupied.


The incident occurred shortly after 3 a.m. today at the motel, 2992 W. International Speedway Blvd. The pair attempted to enter the room via a window, awakening an occupant who fired a gun at them, injuring the male.


The pair then fled toward the Tomoka Farms Road area in Daytona Beach.

He has been shot in his buttock. The female suspect is white, about 5’6” and carrying a black backpack.


Anyone with information about these individuals should call 911 immediately.
