Deputy officials were already around the area responding to an unrelated call when they heard more than fifteen shots being fired.

The silver car halted after it had been shot multiple times, resulting to a shot-out black window and numerous bullet holes.

The 13-year-old, who was shot in the arm, was the one who ran towards the deputies for help. The ten-month-old child only suffered a grazed wound. They were brought Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children for treatment.

As for the mother, 21-year-old Imelda Francois was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center where she was declared dead.

According to Demings, the incident was “very violent” and even more heartbreaking because children were involved.

He said, “As a father and as a grandfather, whenever you see incidents like this occur it’s emotional for the entire community.”
