ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Two people were shot inside an Orange County home during a home invasion early Thursday morning, authorities said.

Officers said five people were inside the home on Golden Glenn Drive when a Hispanic man in his 20s walked into the residence.

Authorities said the home invader was confronted by a teenager and woman in her late 40s, who were then shot.

Sandy Moris, who was visiting a friend in the home, said she heard the intruder enter the home so she ran into the restroom and then heard gunshots.

The gunman left the home and remains at large, authorities said.

"They asked him to leave and he didn't want to leave," property manager Kim Campbell said. "It surprises me to know that someone would just walk right in your front door."

Campbell said the family has been tenants of hers for two years and have never caused any problems.

"It is not coming from our neighborhood, it is coming from outside of our neighborhood," said Campbell.

According to the property manager, holes in a fence and a basketball hoop are drawing the wrong crowd and bringing crime into the area.

"We have had 20 or 30 people out here at 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. playing basketball," Campbell said.

Campbell told Channel 9 that the hoop will come down.

The victims were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Both were released and are at home recovering.
