Alcohol Fuels Domestic Dispute/Ends in Arrest

September 23, 2014

Levy County
Deputies responded to a 9-1-1 call at 7530 NW 168 Lane in Fanning Springs last
night to desperate pleas for help from a woman. She reported to the 9-1-1
Telecommunicator her husband was drunk and had been fighting with her. While on
the phone with 9-1-1, the Telecommunicator heard gunfire. The caller
immediately exclaimed she had been shot. Additional shots could be heard in the
background.

The first responding deputy was
able to get the victim and her 84 year old mother away from the assailant to a
safe location. The deputy then ordered the suspect, identified as George
Halleran 10-21-55, to surrender. During the exchange between the deputy and
Halleran, Halleran began to resist and had to be subdued before being placed
into handcuffs.

Levy County
Public Safety personnel were able to safely approach the scene and give aid to
the woman. She had been shot in the forehead by the assailant who was armed
with a 38 caliber handgun. She was transported to Shands at UF for treatment.
Shands at UF treated the victim for a non life threatening injury and is
holding her for observation.

George Halleran has been charged
with Attempted Murder, Resisting Arrest without Violence and Domestic Battery.
He is being held at the Levy County Detention Facility on a $3,075,000.00 bond.
