2 Dead, 2 Wounded in Shooting at Florida Basketball Court

14-year-old boy among two killed in shooting, authorities say

Authorities says two people including a 14-year-old boy were killed and two others were wounded from a gun fight at an outdoor basketball court in Florida.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office tweeted Friday that multiple people started shooting at each other Thursday night during a fight at a basketball court in a city park.

Lt. Ellis Burns tells The Florida Times-Union that possibly a dozen bullets were fired.

The sheriff's office says there's no reason to believe the shooting was gang-related.

Authorities haven't released the identities of the victims.
