• Man with shotgun taken into custody near Orange County school


    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - The Orange County Sheriff's Office said a shotgun was seized from an armed man in east Orange County.

    Robert William Vinn, 19, a white male was dressed all in black and spotted carrying a shotgun near East River High School and Corner Lakes Elementary School, according to investigators. Both schools were locked down as a precaution.

    Deputies said they recovered a 12-gauge shotgun with three rounds. The shotgun was disassembled, officials said. Schools were advised the area is secure.

    The Sheriff's Office sent a tweet around 4 p.m. saying a man was arrested near East River High School Friday afternoon. They later said that the man was not arrested.

    In the tweet they said, "Too early to tell if Conn. Copycat."

    Investigators said charges will be filed with the State Attorney's office for breach of peace.
