Shooting at Amazon Warehouse Leaves One Dead, One Wounded


A woman is dead and a man wounded following a shooting at an Amazon fulfillment center in Jacksonville, Florida, authorities say.

Police are calling the fatal shooting a “domestic incident” involving two people who are believed to have been Amazon employees.

Jacksonville Sheriff’s deputies arrived to the facility at around 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday night and discovered a 22-year-old black female and an injured black male, both suffering from gunshot wounds.

The woman was declared dead at the scene, and the man was transported to a hospital in unknown condition.

“This does not appear to be any type of active shooter incident. This does not appear to be any type of workplace violence,” Lt. J.D. Stronko told local media. “As you would expect in a facility of this size and operation, there were multiple witnesses to this incident.”
