Six people were shot and injured during a shooting in Jacksonville, Florida, on Sunday.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said the shooting happened around 12:30 p.m.in the 800 block of A. Philip Randolph Boulevard. "At this time, six adults shot with three in critical condition".

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said the shooting occurred just a half-mile away from TIAA Bank Field where the Jaguars play.

Deputies believe the shots were fired from the passenger side of a grey or silver Nissan Altima or Maxima, Lendvay said.

Ron Lendvay, director of investigations for the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office gave no indication of any link to the game, which started at 1 p.m. and wasn't affected.

The vehicle then fled westbound on Pippin Street. The story will be updated as more information becomes available. He added that authorities made plans to escort fans to any cars parked near the scene, allowing them to leave unimpeded once the game ended.

Some witnesses said it appeared to be a drive-by shooting.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott also said in a statement that he had reached out to Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams, offering any state resources Jacksonville may need.
