Car crashes into tree after passenger fatally shot


ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Orange County deputies are investigating a fatal shooting that ended with a crash near the intersection of Hastings and Silver Star roads in Pine Hills.

Investigators said a woman was driving when a passenger in her car, 20-year-old Andrew Gayle, was shot and killed.

At about 9 p.m. Wednesday, deputies said someone opened fire, striking Gayle.

"On the north side of the intersection, there was some kind of shooting the female tried to drive the victim across the street away from the area and crashed into the tree," said Paul Hopkins of the Orange County Sheriffs Office.

The woman who was driving the car was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Gayle was pronounced dead.

CSI as well as homicide detectives responded to the scene to search for clues.

Detectives interviewed witnesses and said they planned to talk to the driver.

"As far as suspect information, right now, we don't have any, because it's too early in the investigation," Hopkins said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Orange County Sheriffs Office.
