Violent night in Orlando injures several in shootings, stabbing

- More deadly violence in an already reeling Pine Hills. Deputies say Brandon Bascom, 31, died after he was involved in a shooting Saturday afternoon along Silver Star Road and Powers Drive. An innocent bystander was hurt in the process.

"It's sad. It's really sad," said Pastor Brenda Rowe, lead pastor of His Ministries in Pine Hills.

Orlando Police said around 9 p.m. Saturday, a man was shot in the driveway of a home near Watch Hill, in the 4500 block of Three Lakes Circle. Police said that person was in stable condition at last check.

Around 9:10 p.m. Saturday night, deputies said a man was stabbed along the 900 block of Alecon Drive. Deputies said he was in stable condition.

"The things that I see that is going on in this neighborhood is just totally ridiculous," Rowe said.

Yet another shooting Saturday night, around 9:31 p.m. left a 26-year-old man in critical condition, investigators said, after he was shot along the 5600 block of Breckenridge Circle. He was taken to the hospital by a family member.

"I'm tired of it," Said Rowe. "I'm sick of it."

Orlando Police said another person was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound. This happened after shots were fired into a home along the 4800 of Donovan Street, near Tam Drive, around 10:05 p.m. Saturday night.

Pastor Rowe, of His People Ministries, grew up in Pine Hills. She said it's just too much.

"We want all this violence and all this stuff that's going on to stop! We have to live in this community," she said.

She's calling on the community to take a stand and make their voices heard.

"Everybody. We need to pull together, come together," Rowe said. "We need to decide what we're going to do to stop all of this violence because enough is enough."

Rowe told Fox 35 she wants to create a day of prayer open to the public to hash out issues and concerns.
