Report: Another shooting at Florida high school game leaves 1 dead, 2 injured
Just one week after a shooting at a high school game in south Florida left two adults injured, there was another tragic shooting at a Florida high school football game.
This one took place in the Jacksonville area during a game between Raines and Lee, and tragically, this one included at least one death.
According to Jacksonville.com, one man is dead and a teenage boy and girl were shot during the scary incident:
Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office director Ron Lendvay, joined by two ATF agents, confirmed that one young man was dead and a teenage boy and girl had been shot and were in stable condition at the hospital. He said about 4,000 people were leaving the stadium when the shooting occurred around 10 p.m. on a sidewalk outside the field near the school entrance.
“The best information we have so far is that we have a single black male shooter, and we are working to get a more refined description,” Lendvay said. ” … During the game there were some disturbances and fights that took place as it was winding to a close, so we will be investigating whether or not that factored in to it. It’s just too early to say if that’s directly affecting this.”
No arrests have been made, but police are hopeful someone will deliver a tip that leads to capturing the suspect, as there were many fans leaving the stadium at the time.
Sadly, this marks another week with violence at a Florida high school game. Even with a magnetic detector and dozens of police officers working the game, this incident still occurred, resulting in one death and a couple of other serious injuries.
