Deputies located Colby Wayne Car and Stacy Jo Burch, 42, of Ocala. During the investigation, Carr admitted he was outside with a friend shooting a 12-gauge shotgun and a 30-30 Rifle. Carr was arrested for violation of probation and Burch was arrested on a Sumter County warrant on a violation of probation.

By 11:50 a.m., the lockdown was lifted. No one was injured nor threatened.
