ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WFTV) -- Investigators said they are searching for a gunman who shot and killed one man and injured two others at the Alta Westgate apartments in Pine Hills off Hiawassee Road Sunday evening.

Just before 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Orange County deputies were called to the apartment complex.

"She was screaming. She was hurt. I don't know where she got shot at, but it was hurting her. She needed help," said a witness, who did not want to be identified.

Investigators said three people were shot, and one of the victims died.

The sheriff's office said the three were victims of a drive-by shooting.

"An unknown vehicle, at this point, came driving around with male occupants and just started spraying bullets towards them," said Lt. Michael Gibson of the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

Neighbors told WFTV they were outside at the time and could hear what happened.

"I was sitting in my car and I heard gunshots. I looked to my left and my neighbors down stairs on the lower level they were all standing outside," the neighbor.

Deputies have not released the names of the victims but said they were all in their mid-20s.
