3 Shot, 1 Killed at Amazon Warehouse in Jacksonville


FLORIDA — The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting that occurred at an Amazon facility Monday.

Deputies say three people were shot, one fatally outside the business—located at 12900 Pecan Park Road. At least two others suffered graze wounds.

Assistant Chief Brian Kee said two men armed with handguns hopped out of a silver car around 2 p.m. local time and started shooting at a line of people who were there to apply for a job.

“This is not random. It was specifically targeting this victim,” Kee told reporters. “We are not inside the facility at all.”

“We’re trying to determine what the motive was why they were after this victim. We have about 10 eyewitnesses that were both inside and outside of the facility,” said Kee. “This does not appear to be a workplace violent incident that you would normally associate with workplace violence or mass shootings.”

No arrests have been made.
