The incident occurred around 10 p.m. at 9664 6th Avenue when a man arranged to meet one of the victims, a 29-year-old woman, to purchase shoes from her.
According to the report, the suspect attempted to rob the woman and an altercation ensued. The second shooting victim, a 31-year-old woman, came outside when she heard the commotion. That's when the suspect shot both of the woman, deputies said.
The suspect then fled the scene in a vehicle and made it approximately 10 feet before crashing. After crashing the suspect attempted to carjack a 20-year-old woman but was unsuccessful. Deputies said he then stole a bicycle from a 52-year-old woman.
At that point, the suspect fled on the bike down 4th Street where he came across a 49-year-old male who left his vehicle running while opening his gate. The suspect jumped in the running vehicle and fled the scene, according to the arrest report. That vehicle was later found on fire and burned.
A short time later, Osceola County deputies made contact with a possible suspect who was identified by the victim whose car was stolen. The Osceola County Sheriff's Office arrested the suspect on misdemeanor drug charges and transported him to the Osceola County jail where Orange County deputies interviewed the suspect.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office said at this time no charges have been filed for the aggravated battery, attempted carjacking, and carjacking crimes.
The two victims who were shot were transported to the Orlando Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
The investigation remains ongoing.
