ORLANDO -- Right now investigators are looking for the person responsible for a deadly triple shooting in Orlando’s Pine Hills Neighborhood.

It happened in the 2700 block of Hiawassee Road earlier tonight, around 7:15 p.m.

Officers responded to a homeless camp behind the Bravo Supermarket in Pine Hills.

Upon arriving, officers found three men in their 40’s all suffering gunshot wounds.

All three of them were taken to the hospital where one has died and the other two in stable condition.

So far investigators believe this began as some sort of robbery and that’s when the shots were fired.

A fourth person was spotted running from the scene and authorities are not sure if that is a fourth victim or the possible shooter.

K9 units have been searching the area for any clues but have since left.

If you have any information on this shooting you are asked to call CrimeLine at 1-800-423-TIPS.

Sounds fishy to me. Everyone knows that there aren't any homeless people now that Mr. Obama's economic recovery is in full swing in all 57 states. Maybe back when the evil George Bush or his father were president, but now? Unpossible!

Who writes this drivel? "Some sort of robbery"?

If I was gonna rob someone, I don’t think it would be a homeless person.

Maybe someone was trying to steal drugs from the homeless men, or vice-versa.

For people not familiar with Orlando ,, the “Pine Hills” area became known locally as “Crime Hills” when the inner city people were pushed out of the downtown area and slightly westward in the early 1970’s ,,, this is Orlando’s version of “Compton” ...

“Bravo” is a supermarket chain that caters to “hispanic” peoples , I’d guess that 75% of their business is conducted in food stamps.

Or maybe a cigarette or a beer. Or maybe a blanket. Gee, I guess it could be just about anything.

Well, you know there are “robberies gone bad.” Probably like this one. And then there are “robberies gone good” like most armed robberies. (snicker)

My wife grew up in Pine Hills. It was as nice and orderly as a middle-class neighborhood could be back in the Sixties. When we drove through it a few years ago, it looked like Haiti.
