INTERLACHEN, Fla. -- The Putnam County Sheriff's Office arrested a man after another man was shot and killed in Interlachen.

Porfirio Correa Torres, 33, was arrested for the murder of Eric Santiago, 26, of Interlachen.  Neighbors knew him as "Big Eric."

Torres was taken to the Putnam County Jail where he was booked on one count of first degree murder and is being held with no bond.


The fatal shooting happened at a home off Caribbean Street just after 5 a.m.

Investigators have not said anything about a motive. Neighbors aren't surprised, saying it's not the best area of town.

Neighbors told Action News another man was killed in the same area a few years ago.
