Citrus Deputies have a person of interest in Sunday murder in custody

Posted: Updated:
CITRUS COUNTY, FL (WFLA) -

Citrus County deputies have a man in custody who may know something about a shooting death of a woman Sunday morning in Floral City. Investigators say someone shot and killed 24-year old Deseray Lynn Bowles of Inverness outside a home at 10495 East Rabbit Lane shortly before 4 a.m. Witnesses drove her to Sleepy Hollow, a nearby restaurant, for help, but it was too late. Paramedics transported her to Citrus Memorial Hospital where doctors pronounced her dead.

Deputies believe 29-year old Gregory Scott Holub of Bradenton knows something about that shooting. They said he was last seen fleeing the area and they considered him armed and dangerous. Deputies arrested him around 3 a.m. Monday morning. Official charges are pending.

The man who lives in the home where the shooting happened, didn't want to be identified, but says he knows Holub well.  "He's a friend of mine and I think it was a dope deal that went bad, and I think they was trying to rip him off or they ... One way or the other, like I say it's a bad deal. " 

Casper Morales was nearby when he heard the gunshots.  He too had little to say about the incident.  "What can you say? Not a lot because I know I'm going to be testifying in court, so I really, what I'm going to say might hurt this man."  Said Morales.  "That's getting the fingers pointed at him. And really, I believe it's self defense. "
