Bulgaria Unknown Man Opened Fire and took 4 Children as Hostages in Orlando

They swarmed the apartment, near the Universal Orlando theme park.

Orlando Police Chief John Mina said a woman left the apartment late Sunday and alerted officers to the assault.

The suspect, who officials say has a criminal history, is the father of some of the children, according to Mina.

The suspect has four children (ages 1, 7, 10, and 12) as hostages inside the home, said Chief Mina.

"Our main concern right now is the safety of the children in that apartment", Mina said.

Steven Martinez, 58, a resident of the apartment complex, was preparing to go to bed about 1 a.m. when he said he heard shots being fired. "He is expected to survive". Some of them are Lindsey's children and some belong to his girlfriend.

Judy Pepper, 44, said she lives at the apartment complex and had fallen asleep on her couch after watching the Yankees-Mets game. Then, the put him in a patrol car and sped away. The police officer's shooting comes about 17 months after Sgt. Debra Clayton, a 17-year veteran of the Orlando Police Department, was gunned down allegedly by a man suspected of killing his pregnant former girlfriend.

The suspect has not been identified, but Mina told Fox 35 that he believes some of the young hostages may be the suspect's children. Officers appeared to be putting bandages around his neck.

"Hell, yes, I was absolutely terrified, '" Pepper reportedly told the paper. Clayton's death prompted Florida Gov. Rick Scott to remove Orlando-area State Attorney Aramis Ayala from prosecuting the case because she refused to seek the death penalty.

The Westbrook Apartments are located at 4932 Eaglesmere Dr., off Kirkman Road.

"To the residents out there, I know it's difficult but just please be patient", he said.

Mina said Lindsey has been arrested for arson and domestic violence battery before.
