FLORIDA: Ten people were injured Monday afternoon during a drive-by shooting in a central Florida neighbourhood, police said.
Lakeland Police Chief Sam Taylor said during a news conference that two of the victims were critically injured, while the wounds of the other eight victims were not considered life-threatening. Lakeland is located about 30 miles (50 kilometers) east of Tampa.
“I’ve been here 34 years, and I can tell you I’ve never worked an event where this many people were shot at one time, ever,” Taylor said.
A crowd of people were gathered along a residential street when a dark-blue sedan rolled by, police said. Shooters fired from the windows before the car sped away. Officers were actively searching for the vehicle and the shooters Monday night, officials said.
Taylor said investigators believe the shooting was a targeted attack.
Police said marijuana was found at the scene of the shooting, and investigators believe drug sales were taking place.
Taylor described the neighborhood as “challenged” and said the police had focused a lot of attention on the area in recent years.
