Carlos Fernández had been shot inside the apartment and police called the paramedics.

However, when emergency personnel arrived at the home they could not revive him and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Detectives from the HCSO Homicide Division then began investigating the brutal shooting.

HCSO detectives now know that Carlos Fernández slept in a bedroom with his six- and seven-year-old sisters.

In another room, Carlos Fernández’s mother was asleep with an adult man who, presumably, was not the children’s father.

During the night, several shots rang out, entering through the apartment windows.

One of those shots killed Carlos Fernández. The shooting was so intense that by a miracle no one else inside the apartment was injured.

HCSO Homicide Division detectives have evidence that at least one person was shooting from a vehicle in front of the apartment.

Authorities do not believe the shooting was random
