June 21, 2019

Key West, FL (June 21, 2019) – On Monday night, a 60-year-old identified as Ricky Neil Orallo was arrested on attempted murder charges after firing a 9mm at three men.

The incident took place around the area of a duplex around 9:41 p.m. Police initially received a call about shots fired and found that Orallo had been staying in the duplex with his girlfriend.

The victims were all identified as 55-year-old Leslie Howard Lambert, 55-year-old Kevin Christopher Daly, and 37-year-old Dekorte Montez Paulk. They were identified as construction workers who were staying in the area for a job.

The workers had a brief conversation with Orallo, who was extremely intoxicated after coming back from the pub across the street. When they arrived, they found Orallo inside one of the worker’s vehicles and claimed that they never gave him permission to be in there.

Orallo was told to get out of the vehicle, went inside, and came back brandishing the weapon. He began firing at the victims. One of the bullets went through a hat that Daly was wearing, narrowly missing his head.

When police arrived, they detained Orallo at the scene. The girlfriend told police that the gun was hers and that it was missing from her nightstand.

Ricky Neil Orallo has since been charged with three counts of attempted murder, discharging a firearm in a public area, and discharging a firearm while intoxicated among many other charges.
