A 27-year-old Orlando man was shot and killed and a 26-year-old Sanford woman was shot and wounded at an Airbnb rental home on Robin Road in unincorporated Davenport at approximately 12:30 a.m., early Sunday morning, September 10.

Both victims were transported to Osceola Regional Medical Center. The man was later declared deceased, and the woman was treated for a gunshot wound and released. There was a family type gathering of people at the Airbnb rental celebrating a birthday.

According to witnesses, the male victim of the shooting walked out to the street in front of the home, and spoke to a person in a vehicle. The male victim was then shot in front of the home and another woman who was at the party was shot once. The driver of the vehicle then fled the subdivision last seen heading north towards Osceola Polk Line Road.
