ORLANDO, Fla. – One person died and two others were injured in a shooting on Saturday in a parking lot north of Jones High School, according to the Orlando Police Department.
The shooting happened during a playoff football game that Jones High was hosting against Wekiva High School.
Police identified the victim as 19-year-old Gamaine Patrick Brown. A spokesperson with Orange County Public Schools said Brown previously graduated from the high school.
Police said that officers working extra duty at the Jones High School Athletic Complex heard gunshots around 8:22 p.m. When officers arrived at the lot north of the football field, they found two adult males with gunshot wounds, according to a press release by OPD.
One victim was pronounced dead while another was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Orlando police later learned of a third victim that “self-transported themselves” to a hospital after sustaining a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.
