The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said the shooter is on the loose. The agency did not release how many people were injured.

The sheriff’s office later identified the woman killed in the shooting as 31-year-old Princess Tolliver of Tallahassee.

Deputies said the shooting does not appear to be a random act.

Video from the scene shows several law enforcement vehicles and a CSI van.

Earlier, the Florida Highway Patrol reported a travel advisory, informing drivers to avoid the area and seek an alternate route. The intersection was reopened hours later.

Nearby resident Madison Rivera told News 6 that the shooting was nerve wrecking.

“I’ve lived in this community for pretty much my whole life. We’ve really never experienced something like this...” she said. “To hear that this morning was kind of crazy. We would’ve never expected it to be so close to home.”

A person was killed and several others were injured on Monday in a shooting along Rinehart Road in Sanford, according to the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.

Madison Rivera’s sister-in-law, Danais Rivera, said that just an hour beforehand, her parents were traveling from out of state near where the shooting happened.

“Wow. Like an hour later, if they would’ve stopped, they could’ve been on that same intersection,” she told News 6.

The sheriff’s office announced that detectives are investigating the shooting, and a car believed to have been involved was recovered early Monday afternoon.

Deputies said Tuesday that they are working to find out if there is any connection between an event at The Barn in Sanford Sunday night. The artist Jackboy posted the following statement on Instagram after his performance:

Anyone with information is urged to contact the sheriff’s office at (407) 665-6650 or Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS.

No other details have been released.
