From the Apopka Police Department

The Apopka Police Department (APD) responded to several calls regarding shots being fired at the Circle K located at 277 E. Main Street early Sunday morning. While investigating the call, officers located a 15-year-old female who had sustained gunshot wounds as a result of the shooting. Regrettably, she succumbed to her injuries.

This tragic incident has affected our entire community and our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.

This is an ongoing criminal investigation and the Apopka Police Department is asking anyone with information to contact the Apopka Police Department at 407-703-1757 or Individuals with information can also call CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS.

The APD did not include the juvenile victim’s identity because of a request for confidentiality by her legal guardian.


  1. It really says something that this was not a major headline in ALL the TV stations since it occurred this past weekend. Tragic really that less important things get reported when the life of an innocent was horrendously taken. My heart goes out to her family and may that child rest in peace.

  2. I have been living here for 23 years and what is going on lately is a horrible situation….I want to see police officers on bikes around our town,talking and walking like the police officers of the 50s fid.and they knew the neighborhood lije the palm of their hands,and we young people counted on them as well. ,and wanted thank those blue warriors for all they do…‍♀️‍♂️
