“It was pretty scary because you never know when you look outside if whoever they were looking for was there,” said Andy Medina.
Medina lives in the complex right next door to the BB&T where one man was fatally shot, another wounded and a third is on the run.
“Police didn’t really want us leaving our houses or even going into our backyard,” Medina said. “They had dogs, they had flashlights. They were around the whole neighborhood. They had a bunch of people here.”

“The victim in this particular case was doing some type of transaction and was at the drive-thru teller and the subject appears to have had some type of confrontation with the victim and there were shots fired, resulting in the subject being dead on the scene,” said Det. Alvaro Zabaleta. “The victim did receive a gunshot wound to the upper extremity and was transported to a local hospital. According to other information, there was perhaps a second subject seen fleeing on foot from the area.”
That subject is said to be armed and dangerous – news that has Kendall Lakes resident on edge.
“It’s alarming because this area is pretty safe, very peaceful,” said Migel Herrera. “And when I heard that, I have a little boy, and it’s alarming, he doesn’t wanna walk around here late night.”
It was a sentiment echoed by Medina.MORE NEWS: Trump A Dominant Force At Conservative Conference In Orlando
“You know, people don’t really expect this, I guess. It’s never expected, but I guess we just don’t know,” he said.
