A 26-year-old man is dead and a woman was hospitalized after an early Tuesday incident involving three armed suspects who broke into a residence demanding money from the victims, said Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies responded to a call at 1:16 a.m. and arrived at a home located on 10406 Kingbrook Lane in reference to “shots fired,” said OCSO watch commander Lt. Collington Campbell.
Deputies found Mehdi Ari, 26, with life-threatening injuries and had him transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead, Campbell said.
A female victim was found on scene who had been “pistol whipped” by one of three assailants, Campbell said. The woman was transported to ORMC with non-life-threatening injuries, Campbell said.
