POLK COUNTY, FL (WFLA) -

A shooting that leaves a man dead at a Davenport home Monday afternoon, was not a random act, Polk County deputies told us.

According to the latest PCSO report, two men stormed into the house at 17 Forest Drive and demanded to see one of the home's residents, Jesse Allen Shivers, 30, and Christina Assad, 26. When they both confronted the attackers, an argument started.

It quickly turned into a fight and one of the invaders drew his gun. Assad said she'd call 911, but it didn't stop them. The armed attacker shot Shivers, according to the report.

Shivers died at the scene. The invaders didn't hurt anyone else. 

"They were calling for one of the residents by name. It's a matter of us peeling back the onion and getting the information we need," said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd. "We will put the people in jail that did this, our detectives are working feverishly right now."

This is an active on-going investigation. Deputies told us they are looking for a faded old Jeep Cherokee in connection with this case.
