4 INJURED IN 2 SEPARATE SHOOTINGS IN DELAND, DELTONA AREAS
Detectives are investigating a shooting that left three young men with minor injuries early Sunday as they drove on U.S. 92 between DeLand and Daytona Beach, and a separate shooting that injured another man in Deltona.
Deputies responded to AdventHealth Hospital in DeLand around 12:30 a.m. Sunday after three male victims between the ages of 18 and 20 showed up at the hospital for treatment.
Detectives learned the victims had left a house party in DeLand and were headed to another party in Daytona Beach when another vehicle pulled alongside them on U.S. 92 and someone started shooting.
Two victims sustained grazing wounds to their heads, and the third had a gunshot wound to his forearm.
After the shooting, the victims were able to turn around and drive back to the hospital in DeLand.
The investigation is active and ongoing and no arrests have been made as of this writing.
Also early Sunday, deputies responded to a separate, unrelated shooting reported shortly after 4 a.m. in Deltona. In that case, a 20-year-old man was shot in the leg outside a house on the 2300 block of Lake Helen Osteen Road.
Due to inconsistent information provided and limited cooperation from those on scene, details of what led to that shooting are unconfirmed at this time. The victim was treated for a non-life-threatening injury, and the investigation is continuing.
