A 20-year-old woman was shot and killed while visiting a friend’s apartment when two armed intruders forced their way into the home Monday night.

At about 9:30 p.m., Stacey Brown was visiting Mannuel Shaw, 21, in his apartment at 5811 NW 23rd Terrace in Pine Ridge when the attackers broke in, according to Gainesville Police Department Capt. Ed Books.

Shaw threatened the invaders with an unloaded gun.

One of the intruders fired two shots from a handgun before escaping, according to Books.

One of those shots was fatal, hitting Brown.

Police are investigating a delay between their arrival and Brown’s shooting, Books said.

Shaw, a convicted felon, was arrested for possession of a firearm. He admitted to having retrieved it from his father’s car, Books said.

Although descriptions of the suspects varied too greatly for any good leads, GPD is investigating.

The Gainesville Police Department is asking Gainesville residents to be on the lookout for a 1990s-model white Honda connected with the suspects.

Anyone with information should contact detective Mike Schentrup at 352-334-2471.

To give an anonymous tip, call 352-372-7867.
