OCSO investigates reports of gunshots

Posted

OKEECHOBEE — On the night of Nov. 8, 2022, The Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office responded to a Shots in the Area call in the area of 3145 NW 3rd Street, 'Deberry Gardens.'

When Road Patrol units arrived, they located eight 9mm spent shell casings scattered down NW 3rd Street. An empty Glock 9mm handgun magazine was also found in the front yard at the above address.

Detective D. Satallante, with the Criminal Investigation Division, along with the Okeechobee County Crime scene unit, responded to the scene and collected all evidence.

Witnesses at the scene indicated a vehicle was seen driving past the residence at 3145 NW 3rd Street when multiple gunshots were heard, possibly from a passenger within that vehicle.

Seconds later, the exact vehicle sped off eastbound down to the dead end of NW 3rd Street, turning around and leaving the area only a short time later.

We did confirm that no homes, vehicles or residents were harmed or damaged due to this incident. The potential victim(s) also refused to cooperate with the detective investigating the incident. Because of this, the case is closed until more evidence or witnesses come forward.
