Shooting at Alta Westgate apartments leaves two injured and one dead

Posted: Updated:

One person is dead, two others were injured after a shooting in the Pine Hills Community.  It happened just before 6:30 p.m. at the Alta Westgate Apartments near Silver Star Road in Orlando.

Orange County Sheriff's deputies told FOX 35, the triple shooting may have been a drive-by shooting.  A group of people were standing outside one of the apartments when someone fired into the crowd.

"It was so quiet, so quiet. Next thing I heard were shots," one witness said.

She didn't want to be identified, but she said she was cooking dinner when she heard gunshots right outside her door.

"They were so close, and I didn't know what was going on, so I just dropped down and then when we came outside we saw them on the floor," she added.

Orange County Sheriff's deputies said one man was dead when they arrived at the apartment complex; another man and woman injured with gun shot wounds to the leg and foot.  

"She was screaming, she was screaming, that girl was screaming, she was hurt," the witness went on to say.

She said she called 911 while others tried to revive the victim.  Deputies said the shooter took off in a car. 

Orange County Sheriff deputies didn't make any arrest, and right now they're still searching for the suspect(s) and the car.

Deputies haven't released the identity of the person who died yet.  The other two who were injured, are expected to be ok.
