D’Andra Flythe was one of the two men involved in the fight that prompted the shooting at Parkside Garden Apartments. He later died from his injuries.

And Kerrian Dukes died from injuries at the shooting at North Roads Apartments in Ocala. The other two who were shot are expected to survive their injuries.

A warrant for Jaquez Barr was obtained in the North Roads shooting. He was found in Deland and has been charged with Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.


Crime scene tape and forensic markers all lined an area inside of Parkside Garden Apartments in Ocala.

What started off as an argument between two people turned deadly.

"We do know it began verbal, became physical and then of course shots were fired,” Meghan Shay with the Ocala Police Department said.

The two involved fired at each other and those bullets also hit two bystanders.

One of the shooters is dead and three other people were wounded and taken to the hospital.

Police say the two bystanders are expected to be okay.

As soon as they cleared up the scene at that apartment complex just a little past 6pm, shots were fired at North Roads Apartments, just 10 minutes away.

One person is dead and two others are in the hospital.

Police are investigating two nearby areas for this shooting.

"The reason for multiple scenes in this particular shooting is that one of the victims went to another location. However there is only one location where the shooting occurred,” Shay said.

Bullet casings were left on the floor as detectives investigated.

Police say it's too early in the investigation to know if the two shootings are connected.

They haven't named any suspects-- or the victims-- and are asking anyone with any information about these two shootings to contact their detectives.
