Deputies Arrest Man in Apopka Fatal Shooting
Today, deputies arrested a man who they say is responsible for shooting to death another man in Apopka nearly ten days ago.
Chester Sharp, 36, was arrested Tuesday by Orange County Homicide investigators and has been charged with first degree murder.
Investigators say, Sharp shot and killed 35-year-old Nikki Smith on July 22.
Smith was found lying on the ground outside a home in the 1300 block of Highland Avenue in Apopka around 2:00 a.m. He was transported to the Orlando Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead from a gun shot wound.
It is not clear what led to Smith’s murder.
Sharp was located by the OCSO Felony Squad and will be booked into the Orange County Jail later today.
