COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. — A 24-year-old man in Collier County is being charged with second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder.

The Collier County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) says this is in connection with a double shooting stemming from a domestic incident that left one woman dead and another woman seriously injured.

CCSO says Deputies responded to a report of a shooting in the 1100 block of Little League Road shortly before 6:30 p.m. on Saturday.

According to CCSO when deputies arrived they found two women inside a vehicle with multiple gunshot wounds.

They say the passenger was deceased and the driver was badly injured and taken to the hospital.

A nearby resident captured the moments the shooting took place.
