JSO: 2 dead, 1 hospitalized during 3 unrelated shootings within an hour of each other

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is investigating three unrelated shootings that occurred Monday evening, and they’re working to name a suspect in each.

Sgt. Mike Russell, with the Sheriff’s Office, said units were called to Baldwin Street in the Robinson’s Addition neighborhood at 6:10 p.m. in reference to a double shooting. Russell said that two men, who were in their 20s, were hospitalized.

One man was treated and released, Russell said, while the other man died of his injuries.

Officers were called to another scene on Martha Street in the Grand Park neighborhood, where a man in his 20s was found shot multiple times. That man was rushed to a hospital where he died from his injuries.

“We do not believe that these two incidents are related to one another,” Russell noted in a news briefing.

At 7:25 p.m., officers responded to reports of gunshots on Watergate Lane.

When officers got to the scene, they found a man with a single gunshot wound to his upper leg, JSO said.

The man was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to JSO.

The initial investigation revealed the incident was the result of a dispute between known parties, police said.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 904-630-0500 or submit an anonymous tip to First Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
