• 18-year-old among 2 killed in separate shootings


    ORLANDO, Fla. - Orlando police are investigating two separate shootings that left two people dead overnight.

    The first shooting happened at a downtown Orlando nightclub.

    The incident started with a fight inside Club Limelight on N. Orange Avenue, just before 3:30 a.m. and ended with a shooting in the parking lot, authorities said.

    Detectives told WFTV it started when Dinan Cannon, 18,  got into a fight inside of the club.

    "It's sad because he is eighteen and so young and stuff and he had his whole life ahead of him," resident Shykeria Wade said.

    The other person involved was kicked out but waited around until Cannon left.

    That's when, investigators said, the shooter pulled out a handgun and opened fire on Cannon in the parking lot, killing him.

    Emergency responders rushed Cannon to Orlando Regional Medical Center, but they could not save him. Investigators said Cannon is not from Florida.

    Bloody cloths were still on the ground when WFTV arrived at the scene.

    Crime scene investigators scoured the area for clues, while detectives talked to Cannon's friends.

    It's unclear what the fight was about, but investigators said they are having a difficult time getting information from club management.

    WFTV went to the manager's home to try to obtain information about the incident.

    "Can you tell us about the shooting last night?" WFTV reporter Tim Barber asked.

    However, just as a women was about to open the door, a man yelled at her not to.

    "That is very sad for them not to say anything," Wade said.

    According to a police report, officers have been called to the club 41 times this year.

    Another report states that law enforcement has been called to the club more than 100 times last year.

    Meanwhile, another shooting overnight claimed the life of a person on Kirkman Drive in Orlando.

    Police said that when they arrived, they found the victim shot to death inside a Studio Park apartment at about 2 a.m.

    The identity of the victim is being withheld, pending next of kin notification.

    No arrests have been made.

    Members of the Orlando Police Department Homicide Unit along with the Crime Scene Unit are investigating both shootings. Anyone with information related to either incident is asked to call Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS. Tipsters are eligible for a cash reward.
