Orange County deputies have arrested a suspect in connection to a homicide Tuesday night where a man was found shot to death outside his home.

Mathew Jesus Prieto, 24, was charged Thursday with first-degree murder, says deputies.

He is accused of killing Emilio Jose Curet, 21, who was found dead on the front porch of his house on 7782 Toledo Street.

Authorities said Wednesday that two Hispanic men were seen leaving the scene, and that one fled in a red car while another fled in a black car.

The Orlando Police Department confirmed Tuesday night that Curet was also found with a gun on him and a person of interest was detained.

The investigation is ongoing.
