Four People Shot at Unlicensed Club in Orange County, Two Suspects in Custody


There was a shooting in the middle of a parking lot on Orange Blossom Trail in Orange County that hurt four people. Two of those people have been named as suspects.

Monday just before 7 a.m., there was a shootout outside of Upstate Hall, which Orange County Sheriff’s Office officers say is an after-hours club. When deputies got to the scene of the killing, they found two guys who had been shot and took them to the hospital right away. Two suspects were caught and taken to the hospital.

The shop was in a strip mall that was closed all day while police looked for proof.

According to investigators, the club was functioning illegally. According to the sheriff’s office, this club has been on their radar for unlawfully selling alcohol after hours, and the establishment does not have a liquor license.

According to fox35orlando, two deputies visited the establishment last month and purchased alcoholic beverages after 2 a.m., the Orange County cut-off hour. Michelle Marie Pizarro Morales, 32, and Jose Nieves Castro, 38, were detained on Nov. 17 on suspicion of illegally selling alcoholic drinks. In Florida, such an offense is currently a misdemeanor.

To prevent people from establishing illegal clubs, Sheriff John Mina has recommended raising the penalties for selling alcohol without a license from a misdemeanor to a felony.
