Edgewater, FL – Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment and firing into a building and a vehicle is what this man faces after shooting at his girlfriend.
Yesterday afternoon (March 11th), the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office responded to Oak Street in Edgewater with reports of a shooting.
Deputies arrived with guns drawn after hearing that the suspect, 53-year-old Lawrence Londino was armed and had fired shots at his girlfriend.
VCSO eventually found Londino and detained him at gunpoint before meeting with his girlfriend.
According to his girlfriend, she was in the living room of their home gathering items to bring to a storage unit due to an argument she had with Londino.
She said that Londino came in behind her and said “You’re not going anywhere” before firing the first shot at her, which struck her purse that was sitting next to her.
The girlfriend then ran out of the house and got into her van to escape Londino. As she backed out, Londino reached in through the window and removed her keys and stated: “how does it feel to not have anything?”
According to her reports, she had a spare key in her pocket and was able to start the vehicle again.
As she backed out, Londino fired another round, this time striking the radiator, disabling the van.
While ducking in the van, she watched Londino enter the residence again. She said that when he came out again, he didn’t have his gun. As he came out, law enforcement arrived and put him into custody.
Her narrative shows that the two of them have been living together as a couple in an on and off again relationship for 14 years. She said that Londino is diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia and does not take medication for either.
When asked why he shot at her, Londino said “I’m sick of her leaving and not coming home, so I shot at her.”
Londino was charged with two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, one count of armed carjacking, two counts of firing into a structure or vehicle, one count of false imprisonment with a firearm and reckless display of a firearm.
He’s currently in custody at Volusia County Jail without bond.
