Deputies: Man shot, killed outside east Orlando home near SR 417

ORLANDO, Fla. — A 28-year-old man was shot and killed outside an east Orlando home Monday morning, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies began investigating the shooting along the 9300 block of Trevarthon Road near State Road 417 shortly before 11 a.m., dispatch logs show.

Deputies identified the victim as Jarnell “Duke” Deravious Browdy.


"Homicide investigators are working through the information and physical evidence gained at the scene to determine what preceded the shooting and (the) subject’s involvement," an Orange County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman said. "The victim does not reside at the residence."

Many neighbors said they heard what they believed were gunshots around 6 a.m.

"I thought the neighbor didn't like me walking the dog with a flashlight and shot a warning shot," said Jo Ojeda, who lives in the area.

Ojeda said he didn't think much of it until he heard what he believed were more shots between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.

"I heard about five shots -- one right after the other," he said.

Deputies responded to the scene before Ojeda was able to dial 911, and they found the victim in a backyard.

The shooting remains under investigation.

No other details were given.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Crimeline at 407-423-8477. A $5,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest.
