One Dead After Shooting In North Port


North Port, Fla. (Newsradio 970 WFLA)- A man hunt is underway in south Sarasota County after a home invasion in North Port.  Police say two men wearing ski masks came through the front door of a home in the 8100 block of Port Chico Ave., where over a dozen people were inside.  

The person who confronted the pair was shot and killed.  Police have now identified the man shot as 19 year-old Trent Bartol-Thomas of Sarasota.

Officers are having a hard time getting anyone who was in the home at the time to talk. 

North Port Police spokesman Josh Taylor says detectives are following a few leads.  Police say the two masked men got away in a silver mini van.
