One person is dead and another two were injured following a shooting at a Florida Amazon facility on Monday afternoon.
The shooting occurred around 2 p.m. at the Amazon facility on Pecan Park Road on the north side of Jacksonville, Florida.
Jacksonville police say that a 20 year old male victim was standing outside of the facility waiting for a job application with six other people when two male suspects exited a silver vehicle in the parking lot, ran towards the victim, and began “indiscriminately” shooting their handguns in his direction.
After the shooting, the two male suspects returned to the silver vehicle and fled the scene.
The 20 year old male victim died at the scene.
Two others were hit by gunfire — a 29 year old male was grazed by a bullet on the arm. A 22 year old male was grazed on the foot. Neither required hospitalization.
Someone inside the Amazon facility at the time of the shooting shared a photo of a man being treated by paramedics. The extent of his injuries was unclear. An Amazon employee tells us the photo was taken from the facility’s first-floor break room. https://t.co/bBnlw7Kthq pic.twitter.com/fMR21lF8xu

Police are still working to determine a motive for the shooting but they do not believe that it was random. They do not believe that this is a workplace violence incident. All of the shooting took place outside of the facility.
No arrests have been made yet.
This is a developing story.
