ORLANDO, Fla. - A 17-year-old girl was shot and killed Wednesday night at an Orlando apartment complex, but few details about her death have been released.

Orlando police said Tatyanna Semion died in the shooting, which happened in a unit at the Aventura Apartments on Cinderlane Parkway. 

Orlando police said no one is being sought in connection to the shooting, but it's not known if anyone has been taken into custody.

"This is an isolated incident and we have nothing further for release," police said in an email.

Family members said Semion had recently transferred to Evans High School.

Antavia Thomas, who was at the complex Thursday morning, said she lost her best friend.

"She was a caring person you can listen to, you can talk to. She laughed all day long. She's a sister I never had. Words can't relly explain our bond. I just want her back because it hurts that she's gone," Thomas said.

A woman who lives at the complex said she was shocked to hear about the news of the shooting.

"Oh, my God, somebody got shot," she said. "Being that my son's room is blocked off, I was really scared. I want to leave. I want to move out. It's just too close, too close to home. I don't feel safe now."
