Deltona woman found fatally shot; Sheriff's Office detectives investigating

Detectives with the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the shooting death of a woman who was killed in her home in Deltona Monday evening.

The shooting at 2008 Dearing Ave. was reported around 5:30 p.m., after a man performing work on the house discovered the victim, according to Sheriff’s Office spokesman Andrew Gant.

The worker found the home’s front door ajar, and after calling out several times, the worker said he went in to check if anyone was inside, Gant said. He found the victim, a woman in her mid-20s, deceased.

The victim’s identity is known to detectives — who have been in contact with her family — but her name is not being released publicly at this time.

The investigation so far indicates the victim was targeted in an isolated incident, Gant said.

Anyone who has information about the incident is asked to contact the Sheriff's Office at 386-248-1777.

Information leading to the arrest and conviction of a suspect may be worth a $10,000 reward. Those wishing to submit anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida can do so at 888-277-TIPS, online at, or through the Crime Stoppers app.
