OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. - For Julio Morales, few words describe the scene that played out at his Kissimmee home Thursday morning.
Every parent's nightmare became a reality when bullets came flying through the bedroom of his special needs daughter.
Amazingly, she wasn't home that night.
"Absolutely horrible. Just disbelief and just shock," Morales said.
The shooting is just the latest in a string of
horrifying and seemingly random shootings that have shaken Osceola County residents to the core for nearly a week.
"Just looking at each other, and that's when my wife just broke down, thinking about what could have happened," Morales said.
WFTV asked authorities what they're doing to find the people behind the terror.
"We have every available resource working on these investigations at this time," Twis Lizasuain with Osceola County Sheriff's Office said.
Investigators said they've collected shell casings and
bullets. They said they have gotten leads but wouldn't go into details.
Meanwhile, the shootings keep piling up.
There were five homes in the Kissimmee neighborhood of Donegan Town Homes where bullets narrowly missed sleeping children.
Three shootings happened on Smith and Lesesne streets in Kissimmee.
There were five shootings in St. Cloud on multiple streets.
tragic is the shooting of 17-year-old David Guerrero, who was shot and killed on his way to work.
Deputies don't believe shootings in Buenaventura Lakes are related.
"Obviously someone is out there who … doesn't care at all," Morales said.
