TAVARES, Fla.—Tavares Police Department is investigating after multiple shots were fired at Rosewood Condominiums Monday afternoon.
TPD officers responded to the call just after 3:30 p.m. when children were playing outside and a busload full of children were pulling into the parking lot, TPD Public Information Officer Courtney Sullivan told Inside Lake.
“This occurred during a time frame when children were being dropped off,” Sullivan said. “This is a residential neighborhood.”
Police were searching for a victim and evidence, and a short time after the shots were fired, a victim with a gunshot wound arrived at AdventHealth Waterman in Tavares; his condition was not released. The victim said he was shot in Mount Dora, but no evidence of a shooting was found in Mount Dora at press time, City of Mount Dora Public Information Officer Misty Sommer said.
“We are assisting Tavares Police Department in the investigation,” Sommer told Inside Lake.
Detectives and crime scene investigators are on scene and the investigation is still active. TPD is asking residents to check their cameras and come forward with any information they may have. Witnesses can remain anonymous, Sullivan said.
If you have information, call TPD at 352-343-2101, extension 4.
