November 24, 2018

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a man shot 2 women during a shoe sale gone wrong and then stole a car, ditched it and attempted to carjack another woman before taking off on a stolen bicycle.

Orlando police say the man then spotted a car left running while the owner opened a gate. He jumped in that car and fled. That car was later found on fire.

The Orlando Sentinel reports the women suffered injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

Investigators said the man had arranged to buy shoes from one of the women and shot them after trying to rob them.

Deputies in a nearby county arrested a man who fit the description on drug charges. Investigators are trying to determine whether he is the same person who shot the women.
