Apartment fight ends in gunfire

3 shot in Ocala during argument between rivals

OCALA, Fla. - Police say three people are in stable condition at an Ocala hospital following a fight that ended in gunfire outside an apartment complex.

The shooting happened Sunday evening at the Spring Manor Apartments in Ocala. Police say the incident occurred as two "rival groups" argued.

The Ocala Star-Banner reports a 19-year-old man who wasn't part of the fight was hit in the chest when a shot penetrated the wall of his apartment.

Authorities say that man and two others were in stable condition when they were taken to the hospital. A fourth victim was taken to the hospital, complaining of knee and chest pains.

The newspaper reports this is the second triple-shooting in Ocala recently. A man is accused of fatally shooting three friends outside an Ocala bar.
