The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said deputies were called to the 3100 block of Terry Brook Drive and found a man, later identified as 23-year-old Lukman Attah-Slater Mohammed, who had been shot. The man was pronounced dead at the scene, according to sheriff’s officials.

News 6 spoke with residents who woke up to the crime scene. Some said the front security gate hasn’t worked in a while and that has them concerned.

Carlos De La Cruz said he and his wife were about to fall asleep when they heard gunshots.

“To be honest the gate hasn’t worked so everybody comes in and out in and out whenever they want. For security reasons, it’s not safe,” he said.

An investigation is ongoing.

No other details have been released.
