JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a double shooting at a neighborhood grocery left one person dead and injured another.

The Florida Times-Union reported Sunday that both victims were shot when gunfire erupted at the Highlands Food Mart. Authorities say several people were outside and inside the store.

Sgt. Steve Rudlaff with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Homicide Unit says the man attempted to flee in his vehicle but crashed into a fire hydrant and another vehicle.

Authorities say the other person was hospitalized in good condition with what appeared to be a minor graze from a bullet.

Authorities say they know from witness accounts that there were several shooters.
