The Pasco County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting at a Lacoochee trailer park. 

At approximately 2:41 a.m., Teresa Thomas, 50, was sleeping in a trailer when she was struck in the head by a bullet. The gunman is currently unknown. 

Deputies believe the shooter was outside of the trailer, located at 19140 U.S. 301. 

A man was shot in the head in the same trailer park last week. Deputies say the two incidents do not appear to be related. 

The woman suffered non-life threatening injuries and has been released from the hospital. Thomas does not live in the trailer where she was shot. 

Anyone who has any information about this case can leave an anonymous message at the Pasco Sheriff's Office Crime Tips Line at 1-800-706-2488, or at Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay, Inc. at 1-800-873-TIPS.
