HCSO deputies investigate fatal domestic shooting

Posted: Updated:
RIVERVIEW, FL -

Hillsborough County detectives are investigating a domestic related fatal shooting at an apartment complex in Brandon.

Authorities say they received a 9-1-1 call around 6 a.m. this morning indicating a man had been shot during a violent domestic altercation at the Sherwood Forest apartments at 10103 Sherwood Lane. When deputies arrived they found a man shot to death and two women with facial injuries that apparently occurred during a fight with the man.

Officials say their preliminary information indicates that the man who was shot, showed up at his girlfriends apartment, forced his way in to her home and started a violent fight with her.  During the fight, a second woman, visiting her boyfriend next door, heard the door and windows breaking as well as screaming coming from the apartment.

That second woman armed herself with a 45 caliber handgun and saw the man beating his ex girlfriend with a metal object outside on the sidewalk. When she tried to intervene, the man attacked her, striking her in the face and she shot him.  Deputies later found him dead in the parking lot.

**Update**

The names of persons involved have been released:

Subject # 1 (deceased) - Daniel S. Robertson, DOB: 10/02/1956 of Brandon, Florida

Subject # 2 (girlfriend) - Cristy Vasilakos, DOB: 12/05/1972 of Brandon, Florida

Subject # 3 (shooter) - Vickie Rock, DOB: 09/30/1962 of Riverview, Florida

Vickie Rock has been released from law enforcement custody and no charges will be issued today . Once detectives have wrapped up their investigation, all evidentiary information will be presented to the Hillsborough County State Attorney's Office who will determine what charges may or may not be filed at a later date.
