According to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, a 33-year-old woman from Brevard County was killed in a motorcycle gang shootout on I-4 early Friday morning.
According to police, the 33-year-old woman was a rider on the motorcycle who fell off and had suffered a gunshot wound. The woman was rushed to the hospital.
The driver of the motorcycle she was riding with, 38-year-old Ronald Donovan of Brevard County, refused to cooperate with law enforcement, but initial evidence suggests he shot the first shot, according to Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.
According to the sheriff, Donovan is a apart of the Sun City Disciples gang. He was riding east with his girlfriend and at least two other motorcycle riders.
Donovan is charged with second-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, firearm possession by a convicted felon, tampering with evidence, two counts of resisting arrest with violence, and two counts of battery on a law enforcement officer.
