Jailen Rasheed Houston, 19, was arrested in relation to the shootings and was booked into jail on a count of first-degree murder, according to FOX 35.
Houston allegedly fired shots at Westgate Lakes Resort & Spa, Marriott Vacation Club Cypress Harbor Villas, multiple apartments and two vehicles.

Houston was arrested after he crashed his car near the Osceola County line at about 7 a.m. on Thursday, according to the affidavit, which states that an AR-15 rifle was discovered on the passenger seat.
When Houston was interviewed by detectives, he allegedly confessed to all the shootings, according to the affidavit.
“He advised that he was frustrated with the Westgate Lakes Resort after believing he was scammed earlier in the evening when he tried to check in,” the court document states. Houston allegedly told officers that he “drove to a store, purchased magazines and ammunition from the store, and loaded his rifle,” before returning to the resort and fired his weapon.
Houston also told deputies about the sensation the alleged attack gave him.
“When asked how he felt about the shootings, he stated he felt good while shooting at people, and it provided him a sense of relief. When asked if he would conduct similar shootings in the future he acknowledged that he would,” the affidavit states.
