1 dead, 5 injured in central Florida shooting

Cashe packed up a few belongings and left the house, and Herring gave the officers a bag of Cashe's possessions that he refused to take with him, including a firearm.

Police said that Cashe did not have any weapons on him at the time. The student and another bystander shot on a nearby street were in stable condition, Gillett said.

Allen Dion Cashe, 31, was arrested not long after the shooting and is being held in the Seminole County Jail in Sanford without bail.

"It is heartbreaking to know that this young child lost his life needlessly and in such a violent manner", Smith said.

The Seminole County Schools superintendent also offered his condolences to the family on Tuesday, and said grief counselors will be available.

The gunman, whose name has not been released, then drove to West 24th Street and Marshall Avenue and shot two innocent bystanders, both of whom were taken to Central Florida Regional Hospital, police said. Smith supported his officer's actions.

Police said an officer who happened to be in the area heard the gunshots and spotted a man driving from the scene. "Our hearts go out to the families of these young and innocent children". Cashe shot Herring five times, according to police.

Cashe is charged with first degree homicide, four counts of attempted first degree premeditated homicide, one count of second degree attempted homicide, one count of felon with a firearm, and one count of violation of parole - felon with a firearm.

Cashe is set to appear in court on April 17 for violating his probation, and will appear before another judge on May 2 on his new charges.
