ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Deputies said four people are in custody after dozens of shots were fired in an east Orange County neighborhood Sunday morning.

No one was injured in the shootings at the Villas at Cypress Springs townhome subdivision in east Orange County.

According to the sheriff’s office, deputies responded when a woman called 911 reporting shots being fired in the neighborhood around 2:30 a.m.

"We heard gunshots, like a lot of them," a neighbor said.

Officials said responding deputies were met with gunfire in the subdivision near Dean Road and Curry Ford Road.

"Once they get out of their vehicles they realized that shots are being fired toward them," Ginette Rodriguez with the Orange County Sheriff's Office said.

Between 40 and 50 rounds were fired during the ordeal that ended in a two-hour standoff at a home in the neighborhood, deputies said. The Sheriff's Office said deputies were eventually able to talk the three men and one woman to come outside peacefully.

"It is crazy because you never think that it can happen to you or in your neighborhood," neighbor Nixaliz Salazar said.

Deputies said they took the group in for questioning and it's unclear what led up to the incident. Officials said one individual is being considered a suspect in the shootings.
