Blind Seminole Tribe Leader Shot
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) _ A high-ranking member of the Seminole Tribe was in critical condition Thursday after being shot several times in his home.
Jim Shore, 55, who is blind, is the tribe’s lead attorney. Police said he was on his couch Wednesday morning when he heard several loud noises, but was initially unaware that he had been shot.
Shore was hit several times in the torso but was able to call 911. He was conscious when police arrived and was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital.
Police said there was no evidence of forced entry and it appeared someone shot Shore while standing outside a sliding glass door. Police said they had no suspects and that Shore hadn’t received any threats.
