Two people, a mother and her young son, were taken to the hospital with “serious injuries,” Catlin said. Both were shot multiple times.
At this point, investigators do not think the two shootings are connected.
“We believe this is going to be an isolated incident,” Catlin said of the Citrus Court shooting. “We believe the victims know the assailant. We’re in the process right now of identifying that subject.”
Two small children were also in the Citrus Court home when their mother and brother were shot. Officers are caring for the children, including an infant, while they try to locate their relatives.

The relationship of the shooter to the woman was not known.
Detectives are now canvassing both crime scenes to look for witnesses and collect evidence. At Aspen Woods, investigators believe there was some kind of shootout, but that has not been confirmed, Catlin said.
The conditions of the victims were not immediately known.
