FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Reuters) – A man killed his girlfriend and wounded five other people, including two children and a high school student at a bus stop, during a shooting spree in central Florida on Monday, police said.
The incident started around 6 a.m. local time inside a home in Sanford, about 30 miles north of Orlando. Police say Allen D. Cashe opened fire a few hours after officers had been called to break up a dispute over a vehicle between him and his girlfriend, who was not identified.
Cashe, 31, killed the girlfriend and critically wounded her two sons, ages 7 and 8, and her father, Sanford Police spokeswoman Bianca Gillett said.
The boys and their grandfather were in critical condition at regional hospitals, and one of the children was “fighting for his life,” Gillett said later by phone.
After leaving the home, Cashe shot two random bystanders on a nearby street, police said.
It also was not immediately known if he had an attorney.
