$3 Blamed For Gunfire At Pizza Hut

January 7th, 2011 by Staff


POINCIANA, Fla. — Bad blood between brothers was blamed for gunfire at an Osceola County Pizza Hut on Wednesday.
The man accused of firing the shots was arrested and jailed.
Investigators with the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office said Christopher Ortolani, 29, was delivering pizzas for his brother on his day off and was upset because his brother hadn’t paid him a $3 debt.
Employees at the Pizza Hut said they hid when the two got into a fight, and authorities said Ortolani opened fire.
No injuries were reported, but there was damage to the front of the restaurant.
Authorities said they found Ortolani at his home armed with an assault rifle, two handguns and ammunition.
Ortolani was fired from the restaurant. He has bonded out of jail but faces serious charges.
