Search for suspects in the deadly shooting at the Amazon Fufillment Center increases


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – An Amazon spokesperson said the company is adding security and advice for employees at one of its warehouses on Pecan Park Road after a deadly shooting on Monday afternoon.

One person was shot and killed at an Amazon Compliance Center on Jacksonville’s Northside. Police said the man in his 20s was shot multiple times while waiting in line to get a job at the transportation and technology company. Two spectators were injured but will recover.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is now looking for three people who they believe are involved. They are also looking for this car, pictured below.

A JSO spokesman said the three suspects traveled to the warehouse in the silver sedan, opened fire on the victim and then rushed.

Police have not released the official shooting count, but when Sky4 flew onto the scene on Monday night, our photographer counted more than a dozen bullet holes in the facility’s windows.

JSO did not offer a description of the suspects, but a witness told News4Jax that he saw three men with guns, all dressed in black from head to toe.

After the shooting occurred, the company closed the campus and no one was able to leave for hours. She prevented family and friends from picking up loved ones who were known to be in the warehouse at the time of the shooting.

An Amazon spokesperson released a statement.

“This is a terrible tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families, and all those who have been impacted by this incident. We are working closely with the Sheriff as they investigate. ”

JSO is asking for help locating suspects. Anyone with information can contact the Sheriff’s Office at (904) 630-0500. You can remain anonymous with First Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS. If your tip leads to an arrest, you could receive a reward of up to $ 3,000
