Tallahassee, Fla. -- Tallahassee Police were called to a bloody scene at the University Garden Apartments this past Saturday.

Once on the scene, officers found three gunshot wound victims, along with shell casings from two different guns.

Police say two victims had gunshot wounds to their legs, and one was shot in the abdomen. All three survived their injuries.

Witnesses say that a large fight between several people occurred earlier in the day at the apartment complex. Police responded to that fight, but made no arrests at the time.

Witnesses say that a crowd began to grow later in the evening in anticipation of a second fight, and that is when the suspect shot at and struck several people from his vehicle, before speeding off.

Another individual at the complex, who says he was in fear for his life, returned fire. Police say he has a concealed weapons permit form the State of Florida.

A camera at the apartment complex captured the suspect's vehicle, and a witness provided a video taken with a cell phone. Neither video catches the actual shooting incident.

The following day, officers found a vehicle that appeared to be the same as the suspect vehicle from the shooting. A woman was driving the vehicle and told police that she borrowed it from 24-year-old Darius Morris.

Five victims and witnesses were shown a lineup and all identified Morris as the shooter at the complex.

Warrants for three counts of Attempted 1st Degree Murder and one count of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon were sought for Darius Morris' arrest.

Morris is now in Leon County Jail under no bond.
