Infant, two females shot dead in Jacksonville, authorities say

JACKSONVILLE — An infant and two females were fatally shot Sunday evening after an apparent dispute that occurred earlier in the day, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said.

A male and female were also treated for injuries related to the shooting, the Sheriff's Office said. Their conditions were not known.

The Sheriff's Office said at least one person fired a handgun. No suspect description was available, according to Ron Lendvay, director of investigation and homeland security with the Sheriff's Office.

The victims have not been identified.

Authorities received a call at 6:07 p.m. about a shooting that took place near a food mart in northwest Jacksonville, Lendvay said at a news conference. A male, two females and an infant were shot inside a car, deputies said. After the shooting, they were driven to a nearby fire station, where one of the females was pronounced dead, Lendvay said.

The other victims were treated by paramedics at the fire station, then transported to a hospital, where the female and infant were pronounced dead, Lendvay said.

Another female with a gunshot wound later showed up at a hospital, Landvay said. She may be related to the incident, he said.
