ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Investigators are still looking for a gunman after two men in a Porsche were shot and killed in the parking lot of a west Orange County shopping plaza early Sunday morning.
Deputies and paramedics responded to reports of shots fired about 3 a.m. at the Mandarin Plaza at the corner of West Colonial and Kirkman drives.
Two men with gunshot wounds were found in a dark red Porsche that was in the parking lot of the shopping plaza, deputies said. Both men, identified as 18-year-old Bazelais Beaudouin and 23-year-old Gerald Fleming, were pronounced deceased at the scene.
Channel 9 spoke with Beaudouin's brother, Odysseuss Beaudoui.
"I want someone to come forth and say what occurred. My brother ain't deserve that," Odysseuss Beaudouin said.
Investigators continue to interview witnesses in hopes of determining what led up to the shooting.
Channel 9 has learned dozens of people regularly hang out in the parking lot after nightclubs close about 2 a.m.
Russell Mason, the owner of one of the clubs, told Channel 9 they've made efforts to cut down on illegal activity but it's not working.
"We have a lot of security that's willing to go over there and chase these cars away," Mason said. "Nobody does anything about it. The only thing the sheriff can do is harass us for the late night parties but nothing about these teenagers."
Mason said he believes business is suffering because of the violence.
"What they're doing is making it bad for us," Mason said.
The deadly shooting isn't the first at the Mandarin Plaza. In June, Kennedy Olistin, 20, was shot and killed in the parking lot after leaving a nightclub. No one has been arrested for Olistin's death.
Deputies closed the eastbound lanes of Colonial Drive for nearly four hours as crime scene investigators searched for evidence following the shooting.
Aside from Sunday's shooting and the one in June, authorities said they haven't been called to the plaza very often, making it hard for the Sheriff's Office to justify committing resources to watching the people who hang out there, even if club owners wish they would.
"People on drugs and everything else make stupid decisions and this is what happens," said Mason.
The Sheriff's Office said they make the lot a part of their patrols, but clearing people out would require a trespass order from the owners and businesses who lease in the plaza.
Anyone with information regarding the crime is asked to contact the Orange County Sheriff's Office.
