Levy County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) deputies arrested a Trenton man after he allegedly shot a Bronson man on Sunday.
According to an LCSO release, deputies responded to NE 132nd Lane north of Bronson and found a man who suffered from multiple gunshot wounds to his lower legs. The victim identified the person who shot him – Michael A. Huff, 37, of Trenton – and directed the deputies to Huff’s home.
When deputies arrived at Huff’s home, they took him into custody and recovered a .40 caliber handgun at the scene, according to the LCSO. Deputies learned Huff and the victim were involved in a fight at a party on Saturday night and the victim rode onto Huff’s property to confront him. Huff told deputies the victim attempted to run him over with his motorcycle and then dismounted and approached him in an aggressive manner before Hunt allegedly shot the victim in self-defense.
First responders transported the victim to a local hospital and he gave his statement to detectives stating that he saw Huff exit his home as he was riding his motorcycle by and thought Huff wanted to patch things up. The victim claimed that when he got off his motorcycle and started walking toward him, Huff opened fire, according to LCSO.
Detectives located spent .40 caliber shell casings in two locations in Huff’s front yard, which contradicted Huff’s statements that he was standing still when he started shooting.
Huff is charged with aggravated battery with a firearm and is being held in the Levy County Detention Center on a $1 million bond.
