A mass shooting in Orlando, Florida late Wednesday night left one person dead and six others injured, according to local reports.

Orlando Police Department officers said they were dispatched to a residence on the outskirts of Iron Wedge Drive and Southlake in Orlando in reference to a shooting at 11 p.m. FOX 35 Orlando.

Upon arriving at the scene, seven people were found suffering from gunshot wounds. One of the victims was pronounced dead at the scene, and the other six were taken to the hospital and are expected to survive, police told WESH 2 News.

The TV station identified the deceased man as 21-year-old James Jerry Dawn William III, and police say both parties were arrested at the same location around 3 p.m. over a vehicle that was not returned on the agreed upon date. It was announced that a conflict had begun between the two.
