    ORLANDO, Fla. - A 17-year-old girl was found shot dead in an Orlando apartment complex late Wednesday night.

    Orlando police said the shooting happened at Aventura Apartments off of Cinderlane Parkway near north Orange Blossom Trail and Clarcona Ocoee Road.

    Investigators have not said whether the shooting happened inside an apartment or in the parking lot, but they have been seen going in and out of one unit in the complex.

    Police indentified the girl as Tatyana Semion.

    A neighbor who didn’t wish to be identified said she no longer feels safe in her own home.

    “I wanna move out… I don’t feel safe now,” she said.

    Police have not said whether anyone is in custody, but did say that are not looking for suspects and that it was an isolated incident.

    Semion's friends waited outside the crime scene Thursday trying to piece together what happened.
