ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — A 33-year-old man was fatally shot Sunday morning at a condominium complex, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies were called shortly after 8:30 a.m. to the Lyme Bay Colony condominiums near Rio Grande Avenue and 40th Street after Jamarr L. Howard had been shot.
Howard was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, investigators said.
Dale Harvey, Howard's rommate, told Channel 9 the victim was like a brother to him. He said he was awoken by three or four gunshots.
"People inside (were) like, 'Oh, oh, oh. Breathe, breathe, breathe,'" he said. "(And I was, like,) 'Let me go and see who they're talking about.'"
Witnesses said people were seen running away from the condominium at the time of the shooting.
Deputies said the shooting does not appear to be random and that it remains under investigation.
No other details were given.
