Police said there is an active warrant for Junior Jacinthe’s arrest. He faces a charge for aggravated battery with a firearm.

The department added Junior Jacinthe frequents the complex and is believed to be staying in the area.

A man was injured Tuesday evening after someone shot into his apartment, according to the Orlando Police Department.

This comes after his brother, 26-year-old Stanley Jacinthe, was arrested Tuesday in connection with the shooting incident. Stanley Jacinthe faces a charge of home invasion robbery.
