Vigil held for woman shot, killed at Orlando intersection

ORLANDO, Fla. — It’s been five weeks since someone shot and killed a 25-year-old woman at an Orlando intersection, and police said they are still searching for the person who fired the shots.

Carola Luciano’s family and friends hosted a vigil in her honor Monday. They hope someone who saw what happened the night of the shooting at the intersection of South Semoran Boulevard and Curry Ford Road will come forward with a clue.

Police said a truck crashed into the car Luciano, 25, was in last month.

“It should be safe to drive around, it should be safe to come back from work,”

Residents gathered at the scene and chanted “Justice for Carola!” as cars drove by.

Police believe the driver of the 2019 or 2020 white Dodge Ram or someone in that vehicle opened fire after the crash, injuring two people, and killing the 25-year-old.

Investigators said the shooting was captured on traffic cameras.

Police said there were several other vehicles at the same intersection when the shooting happened, and they're hoping those drivers will come forward with new information that will help solve the case.

There is a $5,000 reward being offered.
