TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Tallahassee Police Department has identified a man who died in one of three weekend shootings.

TPD said Monday that Travis Wilson died in an incident that began Saturday morning in the parking lot of Waffle House at 1939 West Tallahassee Street.

Police were contacted about shots fired near Call Street and Stadium Drive around 3:30 a.m. Saturday.

Now the police say Wilson was killed and three others were hurt in that shooting.

Just hours later, officers were called to an apartment complex on East Magnolia Drive for reports of shots fired.

Police say that shooting and one on Lake Bradford Road may be connected.

A local mother says she believes the key to ending this violence starts with the community's kids.

No arrests have been made in these two shootings.

Police are searching for a suspect who pulled the trigger in these cases. 

In another shooting, a man arrested after a meeting set up on a mobile app to discuss buying and selling a cell phone led to a teenager being shot in the leg has been released on his own recognizance. 

Daniel Sierra, whose bond was set at $125,000, was released Sunday.

His first appearance, which was to have been Monday morning, has been reset because he is no longer in jail.

Lorenzo Winford, 18, was shot in the leg Friday night after an argument broke out with Sierra, 20, and another man. 

Police say Sierra shot at the vehicle Winford was in, trying to flee the incident at 475 Appleyard Drive. The car's driver flagged down an ambulance in the 400 block of West Tennessee Street for help.  

Winford was taken to a nearby hospital, his condition remaining unknown, and Sierra was taken to the Leon County Jail.
