Man, 25, arrested, accused of shooting into Orange County nightclub last year, injuring 6

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Orange County deputies announced an arrest Tuesday related to a shooting at a nightclub last October that injured six people.

Deputies said Cristian Burgos, 25, shot six people in an October 2022 drive-by shooting at Toxic Lounge.


They said he also fired shots into a hooka lounge a half hour later.

Investigators said Burgos has connections to a rival nightclub that was outbid to host a local rapper.

Detectives said they tracked him down after he was involved in a carjacking in January. They said ballistics from a gun found in that incident matched those from the October shootings.

Deputies said Burgos is being held in Seminole County Jail on federal gun charges.
