Orange County deputies are trying to figure out why a man fired off a gun at a Walmart Sunday morning.

Deputies told WKMG-TV they responded to 911 calls after shots were fired at the Walmart at 8101 South John Young Parkway.

Deputies confirmed with Local 6 that shots were fired, but no one was hit by the bullets.

Deputies said when they arrived on scene they found a man on the ground near the entrance of the store with his arms and legs spread.

Deputies said the man was pointed out by witnesses as the shooter.

Deputies said the man, 43-year-old Rodney Summers, made claims that someone had stolen his bike and he was trying to get it back.

Deputies said Summers approached three victims and produced a firearm then started firing one or two rounds into the ground and possibly one round in the air.

Deputies said Summers was charged with reckless discharge of a firearm, reckless display of a firearm, and aggravated assault and taken to the Orange County Jail.
