JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said a man was shot while he was in line at the Amazon fulfillment center in Jacksonville.

Statement from Amazon Spokesperson Timothy Carter”
“This is a terrible tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families, and all those who have been impacted by this incident. We are working closely with the Sheriff as they investigate.
“This incident occurred outside of the building.
“We immediately locked down our building to ensure the safety of those inside the site.
“We’re offering counseling and support at the building.
“This involves individuals who were in a queue for a New Hire event.
“We refer you to the police, who are actively investigating, for further details of what occurred. You can see a briefing by the police here with further details.”
Adeara Booth said he was filling out hiring paperwork at the time of the shooting. She said she was just feet from the gunmen.
“I saw a gentleman dressed in all black, and the next thing you know he just started shooting,” Booth said. “I stood in shock. So, I guess after the five or six gunshot started shooting out, I saw another gunman. He was just like going in between the cars.”
Inside, employees were on lockdown.
“I was on the third floor,” Heather Goodrich said. “Everyone on the third floor we all had to stay in our stations, nobody could move, since two o’clock.”
Now, witnesses and workers are trying to cope with the unthinkable.
“It was very scary because it could’ve easily been me,” Booth said. “It could’ve easily been me.”
JSO says they were on scene with the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department.
