Two Suspects Arrested in Overnight Shooting
OCALA- Investigators arrested two people in connection with the shooting death of a man from Ocala Thursday.
Just after 2:30 AM, gunshots were heard near SW 19th Avenue and 1st Street.
Then, more gunshots were heard a mile away.
During the time officers responded to both incidents, a call came in about a man who had arrived at a hospital with a gunshot wound.
28-year-old Samuel Lee Washington later died.
Detectives are still investigating what happened, but have arrested 22-year-old Laquan Barrow and 20-year-old Howard Lee Hill.
They have not yet been charged with Washington's death but face related charges.
Bullets struck two homes near NW 4th Street, but no one there was hurt.
Officials say Washington was from Georgia and had been in Ocala for the past year.
