A Florida man was shot and killed at his own birthday party early Sunday morning.

Family and friends of Alexis Osmick told WESH the father of nine children was excited that his birthday fell on Father's Day. He posted a video invitation on Facebook to a big party at this home on Pioneer Drive to celebrate.

They say just after 3 a.m. Sunday morning, with the party was still going strong, some type of fight broke out and Osmick tried to break it up. The witnesses say that's when Osmick was shot and killed.

Deputies say the person who shot Osmick remained at the scene.

"We have an individual who is cooperating with law enforcement who has identified himself as the person who shot the victim but he is cooperating with us," said Jeff Williamson, Orange County Sheriff's Office.

There's no word yet on whether the shooter will face any charges or what the fight was about. But deputies say they are not looking for any other suspects.

"The shooting victim does not live in the home where the shooting occurred. Neighbors tell us that particular house is known for large parties," said Amanda Ober, of Orange County, Fla.
