Two adults and a 3-year-old were shot and killed after an argument turned violent at a Florida apartment complex, investigators say.
Deputies with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office responded to a call about a shooting at an apartment complex on Jacksonville’s south side at about 10 p.m. Sept 23, Assistant Chief J.D. Stronko said at a news briefing posted on Facebook.
Deputies found four people shot, Stronko said, and three ultimately died, including a toddler.
The victims have not been publicly identified.
Investigators were told a group of five traveled to the complex in order to sell a dog, according to Stronko. At some point, an argument broke out in a breezeway and four members of the group were shot.
Witnesses said two unknown men left the scene, got into a sedan and drove away, Stronko said.
An investigation is underway, Stronko said, and anyone with information regarding the case is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at 904-630-0500.
