    Two people are dead and four others are injured after three double shootings in Jacksonville -- all in less than 24 hours.

    Police said the first shooting started with a fight on Belfort Road at Dickie Drive.

    Witnesses told police two cars pulled onto Dickie Drive. They said several people got out of one car and attacked a couple.

    The car drove off and a third car pulled up.

    “One of the occupants of the third car actually fired several rounds, at both of these people, hitting both of them, the female and the male,” Jimmy Judge, with JSO, said.

    The woman drove them to St. Vincent’s and then they were flown to UF Health Jacksonville.

    Hours later, a woman was found dead in the street on Columbus Avenue. Police said a second person, a man, was also shot.

    “It’s not safe. I wouldn’t come through here,” neighbor Sauda Manuel said. “Not at night, no.”

    A 16-year-old girl was seriously hurt in a third shooting on Melanie Avenue. 

    Neighbors say her boyfriend shot her and her mom’s boyfriend.

    “To have multiple shootings is not so unusual. To have multiple shootings where multiple victims are involved, yes that is unusual,” Action News Jax law and safety expert Dale Carson said.

    JSO has not announced any arrests in the shootings.
