3 dead after shooting at apartment complex on Jacksonville’s Northside

The JSO gang unit was conducting a deployment at the Calloway Cove apartments on Moncrief Road when they heard gunfire in the area.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is working to learn what led up to a shooting that left three people dead overnight in Washington Heights.

The JSO gang unit was conducting a deployment at the Calloway Cove apartments on Moncrief Road when they heard gunfire in the area.

Authorities said they then saw a vehicle leaving the area and officers immediately tried to pull the vehicle over.

The vehicle led police on a chase over several miles before it was ended by a PIT maneuver. Inside the vehicle, that police said was stolen out of Clay County, officers “captured” multiple people and recovered several firearms.

An investigation led the gang unit to canvass the complex. Inside an apartment, police said they found two men and one woman dead.

Their names have not been released at this time.
