MOUNT DORA, Fla. — Mount Dora police said they have a arrested a woman for lying to investigators who entered a Mount Dora convenience store following a fatal shooting there earlier this week.

But officers said that was a lie, and that she “saw and heard the victims in distress, and left the store to return home.”

“She made no effort to render aid,” interim police chief Brett Meade said. “She made no effort to notify law enforcement. She made no effort to notify medical personnel.”

Dixon is facing a charge of providing false information to law enforcement in a capital felony.

Police are still searching for the person who shot and killed the store’s co-owners, Minh “Tina” Nguyen, 47, and Khiem “Ken” Ba Trinh, 56.

Nguyen died at the scene Monday, and police said Trinh was taken off life support on Thursday.

Officials said they are working to identify the shooter through security camera footage captured on scene. Meade said a person wearing all black is seen confronting one of the owners outside the store and then forcing him inside the store at gunpoint.

Police said they are looking for a male suspect with a thin build, wearing all black and a black hoodie.

Meade said tips from the community have inched them closer to solving the crime. He encouraged anyone with information about the shooting to call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS (8477).
