Sheriff John Mina says argument over motorcycle led to shooting
(video) — ORLANDO, Fla. – Three people were killed and another was injured in a shooting early Friday at a private motorcycle club in Orange County, Sheriff John Mina said.
The quadruple shooting was reported around 1:55 a.m. at a warehouse that’s been converted into a motorcycle club in the 2000 block of North Forsyth Road, an industrial area north of Colonial Drive near Cheney Elementary School in Orlando.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said deputies found two men dead at the scene. The other two victims self-transported to a hospital, where one of them died, according to deputies.
The surviving victim, who suffered a non-life-threatening injury, is not cooperating with the investigation, Mina said.
Mina said there was a large gathering and an argument or confrontation took place over a motorcycle before several shots were fired, possibly by multiple people.
Mina said there were several witnesses, so he’s hoping they come forward to shed more light on the quadruple shooting.
“We’re looking for the people who fired these shots,” said Mina, adding that it’s not known if the surviving victim had a gun.
Mina said the shooting is not related to gang activity that’s been prevalent in the county over the past several weeks.
“There’s no immediate threat to anyone in the area or who works nearby,” said Mina, adding that all the people involved likely knew each other.
Investigators are checking surveillance video from nearby businesses for any other clues.
The shooting comes a day after a triple shooting at a Melbourne restaurant.
