LAKE NONA, Fla. - Three men were arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a Lake Nona High School student last weekend, officials with the Orlando Police Department said.
Richard Washington, 19, faces a first-degree murder charge and a robbery with a firearm charge in connection with the shooting death of 18-year-old K'vonte Dowe, police said.
Isaak Brown, 17, and Elijah Lewis, 18, were also arrested in connection with the shooting and are facing the same charges, police said.
Police said someone called 911 around 12:50 a.m. last Saturday to report hearing gunshots and seeing someone lying on the ground along the 9200 block of Kensington Row Court.
