JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – One of six people shot last month on the city's Eastside has died, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. 

The Sheriff's Office now lists Robert Lee Williams, 76, as a murder victim in the Oct. 21 mass shooting a half-mile from the Jaguars' stadium

Four other men and one woman were wounded in the drive-by shooting about 12:30 p.m. near a laundromat on A. Philip Randolph Boulevard at Pippin Street, not far from TIAA Bank Field where a Jaguars game was about to begin.
