Orlando Sentinel - - LOCAL & STATE - By Bianca Padró Oca­sio

The sec­ond vic­tim in a dou­ble shoot­ing at an apart­ment com­plex on For­est City Road has died, ac­cord­ing to the Or­ange County Sher­iff ’s Of­fice.

The men were shot on the play­ground at the Mag­no­lia Court com­plex at 7632 For­est City Road around 4:46 p.m. Wed­nes­day, said sher­iff’s of­fice spokesper­son Jeff Wil­liamson.

Bran­don Wil­liams, 27, and Ki­monie Nor­man, 20, were se­verely in­jured when first re­spon­ders ar­rived and were both taken to Or­lando Re­gional Med­i­cal Cen­ter. Wil­liams was pro­nounced dead upon ar­rival Wed­nes­day and Nor­man died Thurs­day, Wil­liamson said.

The com­plex was on lock­down un­til au­thor­i­ties fin­ished search­ing each unit Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon, he said.

Au­thor­i­ties were still look­ing for a sus­pect as of Thurs­day evening.

A he­li­copter flew over the scene Wed­nes­day af­ter the in­ci­dent, and a large law en­force­ment pres­ence redi­rected traf­fic in both di­rec­tions on For­est City Road. Freddy Fer­nan­dez, an area res­i­dent, was on his way to the nearby For­est City Ad­ven­tist School. He said the school was also on locked down.

Wil­liamson said Lock­hart Mid­dle School was also on lock­down dur­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Jen­nifer McKin­ney, 47, was parked with her son on the side of the road, wait­ing for au­thor­i­ties to let her in to her home. “I’ve lived in this neigh­bor­hood my en­tire life, and this is very rare,” she said.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the crime is asked to call Crime­line at 1-800-423-8477. A $5,000 re­ward is avail­able for any­one with in­for­ma­tion that leads to an ar­rest.
