Parramore residents shaken by fatal drive-by shooting

Orlando Police detectives continued their investigation Sunday morning into the shooting that took one man’s life on Conley Street in Parramore.

  • One victim still in critical condition at ORMC
  • Bullet holes, damage evident Sunday morning

Detectives said a group of people were in front of an apartment late Saturday when a car drove by and people inside started to fire several handguns from the car.

Police said 24-year-old Gino Nicholas died in the shooting. Another person is still at Orlando Regional Medical Center and is in critical condition.

Four other people suffered from non-life threatening wounds.

On Sunday, several bullet holes were visible in cars outside of the apartment complex. You could also see holes on the outside of apartment buildings.

19-year-old Sergio Rivera said he found a shell casing just inches from his mother’s foot. One of the bullets had traveled through his apartment door and landed in his living room.

“So I went downstairs to see if my mom was okay and then we checked outside and people started yelling and screaming. I saw two guys on the floor,” said Rivera.

“This is the first shooting that we heard about over here,” said Tanya Dancer, who lives nearby. “We thought it was nice, I was even thinking about moving over here, but after that shooting that has changed my mind.”

A $5,000 reward is now being offered through Crimeline for information in connection to a deadly shooting that happened in Orange County Saturday night.
