ENGLEWOOD, Fla. – An Engle­wood man with a long crim­i­nal record was arrested Thurs­day night after a shoot­ing inci­dent on Wash­ing­ton Avenue.

After a Sara­sota County Sheriff’s Office inves­ti­ga­tion, Mark Stack­house, 28, of 850 Michi­gan Ave., was charged with Aggra­vated Assault with a Firearm.

Accord­ing to a SCSO news release, deputies responded around 8 p.m. Thurs­day night to the 200 block of Wash­ing­ton Avenue for reports of a shoot­ing. When they arrived, two wit­nesses claimed the sus­pect started a con­fronta­tion at their home when he couldn’t find his girl­friend. The sus­pect then pulled out a hand­gun and pointed it at one the vic­tims claim­ing he would kill him.

Accord­ing to wit­nesses, the sus­pect returned twice more and, the final time, fired the hand­gun into a wooded area nearby the home, the release said. When detec­tives arrived, they located a shell cas­ing nearby and iden­ti­fied the suspect.

Stack­house fled the scene but was soon taken into cus­tody in Port Char­lotte by the Char­lotte County Sheriff’s Office.

After a med­ical inci­dent occurred early Fri­day morn­ing, deputies took him to Faw­cett Memo­r­ial Hos­pi­tal where he remains.

His exten­sive crim­i­nal his­tory, accord­ing to the SCSO, includes 17 prior con­vic­tions and dozens of arrests in Sara­sota County to include Bur­glary, Sale of Syn­thetic Nar­cotics, Aggra­vated Bat­tery and sev­eral Vio­la­tions of Probation.
