Off Colonial, near UCF. This is a below middle class neighborhood, with crack viles in the road, right next to much prosperity. This brings Bonneville road down to a new level. I bought my first house within 4 miles of there and I can't believe this serious crime can occur there.

I own a home off Bonneville, but not in that neighborhood and I agree it's pretty scummy, but I hardly have ever seen anything close to crack viles in the street, or drug dealers, etc for that matter. I was woken up this morning by helicopters, only to see no news agency on TV was covering the story.

YOU'RE A JACKASS - I LIVE WITH MY HUSBAND AND 2 KIDS ACROSS FROM THE SCHOOL AND HAVE NOTHING BUT VERY RESPECTFUL, UPSTANDING NEIGHBORS. STUPID THOUGHTS OF A STUPID PERSON IS WHAT THIS IS!

You need to calm down and stop typing in all caps. I think this person was just stating the way that particular area is... not everywhere near UCF. Get a grip. I, too, live near UCF off University and my neighbors are also great people. Think before you comment.

Isn't multiculturialism just wonderful ? All these interesting and different people flocking in to bring with them their quaint customs - like shooting down people in their driveways at night, selling dope etc. I feel uplifted from the association.
Multiculturialism is wonderful!

Its the lifestyle that brings drugs, alcohol, gangs into our communities and this affects every culture. Its an international plague which is getting worse by the day.....most people do not have these "quaint" customs and the ones who do normally end up the way this kid did.

It makes a person so sad to see all the violent crime going on in our once beautiful Orlando. God bless these parents.

I've lived in the Bonneville subdivision for over 21 years and it is not a scummy neighborhood. Some of the people that live there might be less than desirable but you'll find that in any neighborhood. There are a lot of really decent people that live there and it's shameful for you to make such a blanket statement. This is the first time I've ever heard of a shooting. The area used to be a nice area to live in but then came massive development and crime along with that. Gangs are moving east and crimes rates are soaring. Maybe it's time for my family and I to move.

Curious, I agree that the crime in Orlando has raised dramatically, and it can be compared to NY, and LA... I think its worse. I was born and raised in NYC (South Bronx) and moved here 10 years ago as an adult, and I the crime I've witnessed besides just reading the paper is far more worst than what I ever saw in the Bronx or what my parents witnessed in the 30 years in NYC prior to coming here to Orlando. Maybe there should be more opportunity for the un-educated or low income families so they won't have to sell drugs or kill to catch up with the cost of living these days. I have to say that the Education here is far way behind than in other states. Our children are not prepared to afford to live a good life. I can't believe I took my son out of NYC to bring him here for a better life..the schools and crime are a mess..and I now regret it.

About 1 year ago I was almost foolish enough to move my family to the Orlando area,(Windermere). Thanks to better judgement we didn't make the move. I know this incident did not take place in Windermere, but every day that I read the Sentinel it just seams to be getting worse in the whole area in general. A few weeks vacation in Orlando is pushing you're luck these days. I'll continue to deal with winters in southern Mass. thanks!

First of all, my thoughts and prayers to the family of this young man. I cannot imagine the horror of having their child found dead in their driveway. Truly upsetting for them.
I think Carmen had the right to type in CAPS girl. She was slandered and her neighborhood and home was slandered, not yours. You live over near UCF off University - not on Bonneville. The slamming comment was directly related to the people who live there. It is a working class neighborhood and does not mean everyone is doing drugs or getting into gangs. I think Carmen had the right to be upset with that other poster. It is never nice to tell a person how they should feel. Let Carmen have her say, she earned it.

Can someone explain why crime in the Orlando area has become so violent and so prolific lately?

Shootings are becoming so commonplace. Robberies are out of control. People will stop visiting if this goes on and we NEED those visitors, like them or not. it keeps the whole economy going here.

It's not Kevin or Buddy who need to respond. The police, both County and City, are doing their job. It's our justice system that is screwed up. The police arrest, incarcerate, and the courts let 'em go!

Finding my son dead would be quite a shock as I don't have a son. "Damn! Margaret! Have you been keeping this from me for 18 years ?"
