Recently many shootings are happening in Florida. Just a day before, authorities responded to the shooting of Joshua Atkinson, 14, who was shot and killed in front of his home. Sheriff Mina said on the behalf of Atkinson that he was also an innocent victim, stating that “his family told him, don’t hang out with those boys. But he went anyway and now he’s dead. That is an incredibly difficult and tough lesson.”

Mina said, “there are some very violent gangs here at work in Orange County. They are heavily armed and not afraid to use violence. They don’t think twice about who they kill.”

Until now no information about the suspect has been released. The investigation is ongoing. Anyone who has any information about this incident can call the Sheriff’s Office at 407-836-4357. Stay updated for further information!
