JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — One person was killed and another hospitalized following a shooting on the 6100 block of Dawnridge Road South just before midnight on Saturday.
Family and friends in the area confirmed that the teen killed was a student and football player for First Coast High School. The party was also, according to family and friends, an after-prom party.
Police said that homicide detectives were on scene interviewing numerous witnesses and that the initial investigation showed a house party was taking place before the shots were fired.
However, they said it was too early to determine what led to the shooting.
Detectives were expected to be on scene for a lengthy period of time and the intersection of Dawnridge Road South and University Club Boulevard was closed into the early hours of Sunday morning.
