After a week of investigating, Orlando police arrested 24-year-old Joseph Rivera for his suspected involvement in a double shooting at a home on Hendren Drive.

Police got a call about the shooting in the early morning, but no one was home when they arrived.

Police reported the front and back doors appeared to be wide open, but they found several bullets.

The facts surrounding the shooting are still unclear.

Neighbors originally said a break-in evolved into a shootout, but Orlando police said this case has not been classified as a home invasion.

The state attorney's office also seemed unclear about the facts Thursday morning, reporting they had no clear narrative to review during Rivera's first appearance.

Rivera faces several charges, including first-degree murder and three counts of attempted murder.

It's unclear what Rivera's relationship is to the victims. OPD said he did not live in that home on Hendren Drive.

2 accused in home fraud scheme in Holly Hill, police say

Holly Hill police have arrested two people accused of forging documents to transfer ownership of a dead woman’s home for personal use.

Officers said Angela Mack and Joseph Tindle used a forged signature on a quit claim deed to transfer ownership of the home in August.

The home, located on 2nd Street in Holly Hill, is valued over $100,000 and belonged to Eveline Jackson, who died in July 2016, police said.

Officers said Mack used her position as a public notary to file the paperwork and admitted to signing the deed that included Jackson’s forged signature. 

The Volusia County tax collector said Tindle was recognized as the owner and taxes on the home had been paid, officers said.

Investigators who went by to check the home and found it to be overgrown and Jackson’s vehicle was still parked in the driveway.

A neighbor told investigators that a man would come by the home around once a month and tried to sell Jackson's car for $600, according to an arrest report.
