BROOKSVILLE – A transient is behind bars today after officials say he called 911 to report that he shot someone.

According to the Hernando County Sheriff's Office, numerous deputies responded to the area of Candlelight Blvd and Cortez Blvd on Tuesday, after officials say 42-year-old Carlos Martin Saez called 911 to report that he shot someone.

Upon arrival, deputies observed Saez and another subject sitting on a park bench. Deputies announced their presence and ordered both men to lie on the ground. Saez refused to obey commands but was eventually taken into custody.
