SPRING HILL - Investigators have released the names of the men involved in a Spring Hill shooting earlier this week that sent all three to the hospital.

The sheriff's office is not saying whether the men involved are victims or suspects, since investigators have not interviewed all parties involved, and the case remains active.

The sheriff's office identified two men Thursday involved in the shooting, who are still hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

They are Michael Silver, 45, of 3370 Bowery St., and Roy Silver, 32.

Jail records show Michael Silver was arrested May on two drug possession charges and one grand theft auto charge.

Also involved in the shooting incident was William Moore, 28.

Jail records show Moore was arrested May 2011 on charges of battery and probation violation, and again last June on charges of DUI and probation violation.

The shooting occurred Tuesday morning at 8129 Wooden Dr. following a verbal argument inside the home, and among parties who knew each other.

Forensics investigators were at the scene overnight and concluded their work Wednesday.

"Law enforcement is no stranger to struggles created when a person becomes a premature public suspect," said Sheriff Al Nienhuis. "Whether that person is innocent or guilty, it causes significant problems for the investigation. The opposite is also true.

"If law enforcement even hints that a person is vindicated before all the evidence is reviewed, prosecution becomes very difficult if forensic evidence or subsequent interviews reveal that criminal charges are warranted," he added. "Since it is impossible to retract information that is released, we must err on the side of caution on difficult or complicated cases."

Additional details and information will be released as they become available.
