DELTONA, Fla. – Authorities are searching for a man wanted in connection with a shooting that left a Deltona homeowner injured Thursday night, according to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office.

Henry Hill, 25, is being sought for questioning in what investigators are calling an armed robbery and home invasion, deputies said.

Investigators said the incident took place just before 9 p.m. in the 1700 block of Santee Avenue.

Deputies said the victim, who is in his 20s, was taken by ambulance to Central Florida Regional Hospital, where he underwent surgery. His injuries were not considered life-threatening, deputies said.

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office said detectives are still trying to determine what happened, but added that the incident is narcotics-related and not a random act of violence.

The victim's name has not been released.

The Sheriff's Office said Friday night that there was a warrant out for Hill's arrest on charges of home invasion, robbery with a firearm and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Deputies said Hill also has an open felony warrant for other charges.

Hill, who also goes  by the name "Bubba," is believed to weigh 200-210 pounds and stands 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said Hill was last seen driving a black two-door Nissan Altima with Florida tag 6718VP and is believed to be armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida at 888-277-8477.
