According to the police, no suspects are in custody at this time and they are still actively looking for the shooter (s). The victims are five men and one woman, and range in ages from 20 to 70.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said the shooting happened around 12:30 p.m.in the 800 block of A. Philip Randolph Boulevard.

The shooting erupted before the game's scheduled 1 p.m. start, but Lendvay reported no link to the game, which went on and concluded without incident. Authorities confirmed during this that this was a drive-by shooting and may be gang-related.

Local media reports cited authorities as saying the shooting had had no impact on game day activities though some fans headed to the game reported hearing the gunfire.

Ian Mahinmi started at centre and did not exactly distinguish himself, accumulating more personal fouls (four) than points (two). Because the No. 9 pick wasn't able to shoot the free throws, he was, by rule, forced to miss the remainder of the game.

The vehicle then fled westbound on Pippin Street. That shooting was about two miles from the October 21 shooting, ClickOrlando reported. Three of the people are in critical condition, according to a press release from the Sheriff's Office.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott also said in a statement that he had reached out to Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams, offering any state resources that the city may need.

The sheriff's office tweeted an alternate traffic route for Jaguar fans to take after the game and Lendvay said anyone who parked near the crime scene would receive an escort back to their vehicle.
