Police in central Florida said that a drive-by gunshot left ten persons injured.
Two of the victims were critically hurt, according to Lakeland Police Chief Sam Taylor, who noted that none of the other eight victims’ injuries were life-threatening.
Males between the ages of 20 and 35 made up the casualties.
About 50 kilometers (or 30 miles) east of Tampa is where you’ll find Lakeland.
In my 34 years here, I can assure you that I have never handled an occasion where these many people were shot at once.
According to authorities, a dark-blue vehicle drove by while slowing but not stopping, drawing a crowd of people gathered along a residential street.
Before the automobile sped off, four people shot out the windows, according to Taylor.
Police were looking for the car and the shooters Monday night, according to officials.
According to Taylor, the shooting was a targeted assault.
Investigators think narcotics sales were occurring, and police reported finding marijuana at the shooting scene.
The neighborhood, according to Taylor, is “challenging,” and the police have recently paid a lot of attention to it.
