FLORIDA — Deputies with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Department were responding to a shooting near the Jaguars stadium Sunday.

They say “multiple people” have been shot in the area of A. Philip Randolph and Pippin Street—located a half mile from TIAA Bank Field.

According to local media, at least six people were wounded after gunfire broke out at a laundromat.

WJXT reported: One witness said that a man was shot in the head and a woman was shot in the hip. No word on where the other victims may have been wounded. Some witnesses said this appeared to be a drive-by shooting and there may be more than four victims shot.

This incident is outside the stadium footprint and has not impacted the Jag game at this time. As it relates to traffic, we are working on post game traffic patterns affected.”

“At this time we believe the suspect was in a vehicle described as a grey/silver four door vehicle. Anyone with information is asked to contact #JSO at 904-630-0500 or email JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org.”
