ORLANDO, Fla. – A man and woman were shot to death late Thursday at a busy intersection in Orange County, according to officials.
The double fatal shooting happened around 11 p.m. near the Raceway Motel in the 4700 block of North Orange Blossom Trail near John Young Parkway.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to an aggravated battery call and Orlando police officers informed them there were two victims with obvious trauma to their bodies. The man and woman were pronounced dead at the scene, deputies said.
They were identified Monday as Cashmere Infinity Gibson and Montravious Trevell Hunter. Both were 24 years old.
Video from the scene shows investigators looking at two vehicles in the area, but no other details have been released.
Kenny Webster said he was at the Raceway Motel on the corner of Orange Blossom Trail and John Young Parkway when he heard multiple gunshots.
“As soon as they opened the door and I stepped in we heard shots and all of us dropped to the ground,” he said.
Webster told News 6 deputies put him custody because they initially thought he was the suspect. He was released from custody hours later.
“I was the only person walking around when the shots fired and I told them I heard the shots and that I was in the neighbor’s room,” Webster said. “We didn’t hear no cars crashing no body bailing out...anything we just heard five shots and then silence."
Southbound lanes of North Orange Blossom Trail from Parkway Center Court to John Young Parkway reopened around 6:45 a.m. Friday.
