Employee dead after workplace related shooting in Jacksonville, police say

Police say they located a man with multiple gunshot wounds in the parking lot.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — An employee of Mobile Communications America is dead after shooting in the parking lot of the business on Jacksonville's Westside Thursday, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

On Oct. 27, police responded to 6609 Commonwealth Avenue around 11:45 a.m. in response to a shooting.

Police say upon arrival they located a man with multiple gunshot wounds in the parking lot. The Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department pronounced that man dead.

Police say that the man may have gotten into an argument with another person before the shooting occurred. 

Michael Bognanni says he was standing across the street at the time of the shooting. He says he saw one man standing at his truck parked next to a small gray car. He says he heard two men arguing but did not know what they were talking about. Then, he heard two gunshots. 

"I thought something happened to the guy on the side of his truck, I thought something exploded. I went over and I started to see what happened and then I saw the black guy with his gun at the end of the truck and the Hispanic guy that was shot. Then he let him have it for a second time," Witness Michael Bognanni said.  

The suspect is currently outstanding and there was no identifying information for the victim, police said.
