ORLANDO, Fla. - One person is dead and five people are hurt after a shooting in Orlando, police said.

It happened at approximately 9:26 p.m. Saturday at a home in the 1100 block of Conley Street. Crime scene investigators worked through the night and into Sunday morning. Crime scene tape blocked the road and dozens of evidence markers lined the street.

Orlando police said one person, Gino Nicolas, 24, was pronounced dead at Orlando Regional Medical Center. A second victim was also taken there with life-threatening injuries, that individual's identity has not been released.

The other four victims, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, are; 

  • Cordarius D. Williams, 25
  • Daquan R. Lundy, 24
  • Ricky A. Harrison Jr., 24
  • Wendell C. Edwards Jr., 23

A group of people were in front of the home when a car drove by and the occupants inside began to fire multiple handguns. Along with the victims who sustained injuries, there were several other people present who ran away and have been less than forthcoming, police said.

Authorities said the intended target of the shooting is unknown at this time and there are no verified suspects at this time.

"It's just unbelievable. It just doesn't make any sense," neighbor Harold Gustavsson said.

News 6 saw the family of one of the victims leaving a home Sunday morning hugging and consoling one another. They told us their son is OK.

No suspect information was given and police have not released a motive in the shooting.

Gustavsson said shootings like this have happened in the past. He thinks an increased police presence in the community could curb crime.

"If there was a police car parked out there it would change things," he said.

As officers start to piece together what happened, a nearby church watches over the neighborhood. The pastor telling News 6 the congregation is praying for all the families involved.

The investigation is in the early stages and detectives are requesting anyone who saw the vehicle or know anything about the shooting to call Orlando police at 321-235-5300 or Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS.
