Longwood, FL – A Deltona resident is arrested after shooting a man during a reported drug deal in Seminole County.

Longwood Police originally responded July 14th shortly after 9:30 p.m. in the area of State Road 434 and Powell Street to reports of a shooting. It was during that shooting that the victim, Richard Javier, was killed.

Investigators found that the shooting occurred during an “illicit drug transaction.”

Further investigation led detectives to 51-year-old Anthony Gilbery Gonzalez of Deltona, who was soon charged with 2nd-degree murder in the death of Richard Javier with an additional cocaine trafficking charge.

Gonzalez is currently being held at Seminole County Correction Facility on $25,000 bond as detectives continue their investigation.
