JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Sheriff's Office homicide detectives are investigating a triple shooting in the 1900 block of West 25th Street.
Sgt. Shawn Coarsley tells First Coast News the three people were shot just before 1:00 pm. "It appears the individuals were in an empty lot, maybe playing cards or playing dominos, when this person walked up and shot at them numerous times and then fled," he explains.

Police have detained several people for questioning, but believe the shooter is still at large. They think the suspect left in a vehicle, but have not yet released a description.
Witnesses at the scene told First Coast News the shooting was drug related, but police have not confirmed that at this time.
