Someone hates music videos so much that they shot two people who were filming one March 3, 2015

A shooting during a filming of a music video Sunday evening left 2 people injured, including one man who is in surgery and in critical condition.

According to a report by Orlando Police Lt. Darron Esan, a group was filming a music video in the parking lot of the Windsor Cove Apartments at 1458 Mercy Drive on Sunday evening. At about 7:57 p.m., unknown suspects fired toward the crowd from the south.

Two victims were hit, Esan said. One victim is a 22-year-old male who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, and the other is a 28-year-old man. Both men, who were not identified, were taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where the older victim is in surgery now and is in critical condition.

Esan said multiple apartment buildings and three vehicles were damaged by gunfire, but no other injuries were reported. Detectives are on scene now, he said, adding that officers have no suspect descriptions available.

Another shooting had been reported in the area of Colony Way, one street north of the apartment-complex shooting location. It was an area in which one of the shooting victims ran after being shot, Esan said.

Man sets home ablaze after niece refused booze run

After being spurned by his niece for a ride to the liquor store, a Boynton Beach man decided he should burn something: his house, according to authorities.

fireOn Dec. 14, Clemons — who had already been drinking — asked his niece for a ride to the liquor store, according to a report from the agency. She told investigators she told him “No” and they got into an argument. To avoid further confrontation, the woman said she left the house.

Not long afterward, Clemons’ brother arrived at the house. He told investigators Clemons was standing out on the porch mumbling to himself about being “tired of it all,” according to the report.

His brother started making dinner and went out to see if Clemons was OK. Then, he saw a huge flame burning at the northeast corner of the house.
Clemons’ brother was able to extinguish the fire with a hose. Officials said the structural damage was minimal, but a garbage container and an all-terrain vehicle were slightly damaged.

Boynton Beach fire officials later found Clemons walking down the street with a large burn on his forearm.

Investigators determined Clemons poured gasoline against the wall outside and on the all-terrain vehicle and lit the fire while his brother was inside.

Clemons had left the hospital before Boynton Beach police were able to detain him.

He is charged with arson and is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail without bail.
