Shooting in Pine Hills leaves 1 dead, 2 injured


ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – Deputies are investigating a drive-by shooting that left one person dead and injured two others.

Orange County deputies said multiple calls started coming in to 911 just after 6 p.m. reporting someone driving by and shooting at a crowd of people at the Alta Westgate Apartments off Hiawassee Road Sunday evening.

"It was so quiet. Next thing you know we heard shots," said a witness who did not want to be identified. She described hearing almost a dozen shots fired.

When deputies arrived, they found one person dead and one other person injured, officials said.

Family members of the deceased victim tell Local 6 the man and his cousin were visiting friends in the complex before the gunfire rang out. They say the second male victim is expected to survive.

Deputies said a third person was injured, but taken by someone else to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee.

Witnesses say the third person shot was a woman and she was shot in the leg or the foot.
