Sheriff’s authorities say Regina Pines was a guest at 4309 SW 68th Terrace when she answered the door, and was shot in the neck by an unknown suspect. Alachua County Sheriff’s office public information officer Todd Kelly says the sheriff’s office is doing everything it can to find the suspect. Pines is currently being treated at a local hospital for a non-life threatening injury and is expected to recover.
