SPRING HILL - Hernando deputies arrested a man Tuesday believed to have shot multiple rounds at a Dristol Avenue home on Monday night.

Anthony Rivera, 21, was arrested on charges of attempted second-degree murder with a firearm, fleeing to elude law enforcement and driving with a suspended license. His passenger, Alexandra Clubb, 23, was arrested on charges of principle to second-degree attempted murder.

Deputies responded to 4284 Dristol Ave. shortly before 7:30 p.m. Monday after learning of a weapons disturbance.

The victim, Theresa Scott, said she was engaged in a "very heated verbal argument" with Clubb earlier in the day, deputies said. Both Clubb and Scott have children with a man named Anthony Grenier, according to a sheriff's office media release.

That night, Scott saw Clubb's vehicle pass her house multiple times, and saw Clubb pointing towards the house, deputies said.

The final time the vehicle passed, Scott told law enforcement the driver tried to cover his face with a cloth, raised a gun, pointed in her direction and fired several times, deputies said.

Scott and her father, who were both outside the residence, took cover and the vehicle fled.

Scott's mother, also named Theresa Scott, who answered the residence's door on Tuesday, described the neighborhood as "quiet."

Scott's mother disputed the sheriff's office media release, which stated two small children were outside of the house when the shots were fired.

"There were no kids outside," Scott's mother said.

Shortly after the shooting, deputies found Rivera and Clubb on Stillwater Avenue, where the verbal argument took place earlier in the day.

A spent shell casing from a small caliber revolver was found between the windshield and the dashboard when the suspects were taken out of the vehicle, deputies said.

Rivera, who denied any involvement before asking for a lawyer, was being held on $15,500 bail, according to booking records.

After being read her Miranda rights, Clubb "made numerous admissions regarding her possible involvement," according to the sheriff's office. She speculated Grenier, the man both she and Scott have children with, said something to Rivera to "make him infuriated."

Clubb was being held on $10,000 bail.

Court records show Rivera has been convicted of possession of cocaine, marijuana and a controlled substance; carrying a concealed firearm; robbery; battery and battery by a detained person.

He was incarcerated from November 2012 through late January, according to the Florida Department of Corrections.

On March 4, Rivera was charged with DUI with damage to a property or person, and driving with a suspended or revoked license.

Hernando court and booking records do not indicate Clubb has been arrested in the past.
