LARGO – Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Largo man Feb. 1 in connection with a shooting in the Coral Way neighborhood.
According to the sheriff’s report, around 7:10 p.m. Friday, a deputy patrolling the Coral Way neighborhood heard what sounded like a gunshot, then a woman’s scream for help. Deputies responded to 3744 135th Ave. N., where they found Brieonne Danielle Roiland, 30, of Largo, screaming she had been shot.
As medical personnel tended to Roiland’s injuries, deputies set a perimeter around the immediate area and apprehended Trevon Lamar Griffin, 19, running through a field a short distance away from the crime scene.
After conducting preliminary interviews, it is believed Griffin had attempted to rob Roiland at gunpoint when she was shot in the neck.
Griffin was transported to the Pinellas County Jail. He was charged with attempted first degree murder, no bond; attempted armed robbery, bond $100,000; discharging a firearm in public, $500 bond; resisting arrest without violence, $500 bond; and possession of marijuana, $500 bond. According to jail records, this is not the first time Griffin has served time. He was jailed five times in 2012.
Roiland is currently recovering from the gunshot wound at a local hospital.
