JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A man accused in a fatal shooting at the Jacksonville Amazon fulfillment center last year is now charged with first-degree murder.
Daisean Biffle is accused of killing his girlfriend Ebony Nicholas, 22, at the Pecan Park Road facility where both worked last September, then shooting himself.
Biffle was initially charged with second-degree murder but court records show he was indicted on the more severe charges Thursday.
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said officers were called to the scene shortly after 7:15 p.m. on Sept. 29. At the scene, police said officers found Biffle injured and Nicholas dead from gunshot wounds.
The incident marked the second deadly shooting at the fulfillment center in just three months. The first shooting happened on June 29, 2020, when a 20-year-old man was shot and killed while applying for a job at the center.
