Police reported a shooting at an apartment complex in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday that left three people dead, including a toddler and 2 adults over a dog sale dispute.
At around 10:00 p.m., officers were called to the apartments after complaints of gunfire in the 8800 block of A C Skinner Parkway, Assistant Chief J.D. Stronko said during a news conference on Sunday.
As they got to the apartment, they discovered five victims — four adults, as well as the child — who “traveled to the apartments, possibly to conduct the private sale of a dog,” Stronko said.
“For reasons that are unknown to us at this time, a dispute ensued in a breezeway between two of the apartment buildings, resulting in four of the five individuals being shot,” he added.
“Of those individuals shot, three are now deceased. That includes the 3-year-old child who traveled there with them.”
I Get Talk reported that one of the adult victims hasn’t yet been identified, and the other two were in their 20s.
Rachel, a neighbor at the apartment complex, told News 4 Jax she “was laying in bed and heard the pop, pop, pop. It was five or six gunshots, and I heard screaming.”
“I was petrified for them,” she said. “I really don’t expect this to happen. You hear about gunshots, especially around Jacksonville but you don’t assume it’s going to happen in your backyard, especially in a safe neighborhood.”
