JACKSONVILLE SHOOTING NEAR JAGUARS GAME WOUNDS SIX

Six people were wounded, three critically, in a Florida shooting yesterday less than a mile from where the Jacksonville Jaguars were playing.

The incident might have been gang-related, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. The wounded range in age from their 20s to their 70s.

The sheriff’s office tweeted that someone in a silver or gray four-door sedan fired shots from the passenger seat of the vehicle, and hit the victims as they were standing on a sidewalk on A. Philip Randolph Boulevard — roughly half a mile away from TIAA Bank Field, where the Jaguars were playing the Houston Texans.

The sheriff’s office said it was escorting fans who’d parked near the shooting scene to their vehicles.

As of 5 p.m. eastern yesterday, no suspects were custody.

Florida Governor Rick Scott tweeted that he spoke with the Jacksonville sheriff and “offered any state resources they may need.”
