Deputies responded to a call for the shooting at Tall Oaks Apartments around 1.11am

How a doorbell camera played a part in the shooting, on Channel 2 Action News from 4 p.m.

The sheriff’s office said Fernando Solomon, 20, received an order from DoorDash, but it was mistakenly delivered to the house next door. When Soloman went to retrieve the food, investigators say he was shot.

Zaire Cortell Watson, 22, faces murder, aggravated assault and felony charges in connection with the shooting.

The house at 347 Tall Oaks Drive is equipped with a Ring camera. The incident report says Watson’s father saw the victim on video at the door and then called his son, who was inside.

The police report says Watson admitted to shooting Soloman after seeing the victim reach into his pocket. He goes on to say that Watson’s father came to the scene “to try to figure out why we held his son.”

The victim’s father was also at the scene, according to the report, and said he had returned home to find his son had been shot.

Channel 2’s Bryan Mims knocked on both doors on Wednesday, but no one answered.

Sandra Jackson-Lett, who works across the street, called the shooting shameful and described it as “a delivery gone wrong”.

“I’m like, ‘Oh, my God!’ It was horrible for someone to lose their life just by ordering food, so it was very shocking,” she said. “And I just offer my condolences to the young man who lost his life. “
