2 men arrested after shooting into home

Two men were arrested by deputies for shooting into a home in retaliation for a fight they had earlier with the victims.  

Bernie Bob Velez and Peter Garcia Collado, both 19, were charged with shooting into an occupied dwelling.

On Tuesday at 1:14 a.m., Osceola County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a Linton Road home in Kissimmee after receiving a shooting call.
