LAWTEY, Fla. (WCJB) - Three people were arrested Wednesday after a woman suffered a gunshot wound in her left arm, according to Bradford County Sheriff’s Office.

Katelin Drerup, 18, Tristan Langkau, 20, and Randsom Norman, 18, are all facing armed burglary and criminal mischief.

Deputies say the three suspects invaded a home at 1336 NW 241 St. which happened about an hour before the shooting. They held the victim at gunpoint before fleeing in a black SUV with the stolen items.

While deputies were investigating, they received another call about a shooting.

A woman was shot in the arm at 23346 NW CR 200A. The shooting victim was transported to a Gainesville area hospital.

“That's not a common occurrence within our community,” Sheriff Gordon Smith said. “So to us, it’s shocking."

Lawtey Elementary was put on secured status Wednesday morning after Bradford County deputies responded to a shooting near the school.

Drerup is charged with aggravated assault with a firearm, aggravated battery, armed burglary, theft, and criminal mischief.

Both Langkau and Norman are charged with armed burglary, theft and criminal mischief.
