Man shoots cricket bat-wielding attacker

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting which happened around 4 p.m. on Saturday afternoon at Cypress Grove Park in Orlando.

The victim, Francis Singh, 36, is recovering at Orlando Regional Medical Center and is currently in stable condition.

Deputies say Singh and another man, identified as Devan Bascom, 37, began arguing with each other. During the argument, Singh produced a cricket bat and assaulted Bascom. Upon feeling threatened, Bascom defended himself with a small caliber semi-automatic handgun and shot Singh once in the abdomen.

No arrests have been made in the case, which has been filed with the State Attorney’s Office. The investigation reveals that the shooting was in self defense.
