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.

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.
