ORLANDO, Fla. — Three men have been arrested in connection with a fatal shooting that happened in early November, police announced Friday.
Jahkeel D. O’Neil, 21; Jahkiel S. Gumbs, 24; and Deondre Simmonds, 22, have all been taken into custody.
Each faces one charge of first-degree murder with a firearm, and one charge of robbery with a firearm, police said.
O’Neil was arrested on Nov. 20 in Osceola County and transported to Osceola County Jail. Gumbs and Simmonds were arrested on Wednesday and taken to Orange County Jail, police said.
Just before 8 p.m. on Nov. 4, Orlando Police Department officers responded to a shooting at the Ambassador Hotel at 929 W. Colonial Drive. The victim, 25-year-old Jeff Aldophe, was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.
A large amount of blood, along with money and drugs were found inside Aldophe's car, according to an arrest affidavit.
Surveillance video from nearby businesses was used by detectives to identify the suspect car, the affidavit states. Investigators also used body-cam footage which had been captured by officers in the area for an unrelated call.
A female was also in the suspect car that night, the affidavit states, but it is unclear if she will face charges in the case as well.
