According to the report of, Alejandro Laureano and his daughter-in-law Lisset Ortiz, 24, got injured in a shooting held at the Plaza Del Sol mall in Kissimmee, near Walt Disney World.

This incident happened when Laureano whistled to get the attention one of his sons, then two other shoppers, Fabrice Buteau, 24, and Walter Jeralds, 21, thought the whistle was intended for them and confronted Laureano, police said. As tempers flared, a fistfight broke out.

Buteau and Jeralds left the Ross Dress for Less store, and one of Laureano’s sons called 911 from inside the store. While he was talking to the dispatcher, shots rang out.

A recording of a 911 call captured the sounds of gunshots being fired from the parking lot into the store. Buteau and Jeralds, both of Kissimmee and suspected of firing the shots, drove away and were killed when their car got into an accident about 3 miles away. The driver of the other car suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
