One passer-by reported seeing police and fire vehicles as well as ambulances, and what appeared to be people on the ground.

This was the third shooting in Tallahassee in a 30-hour period.

On Thursday, night a man was shot and hospitalized after an argument turned violent at Springfield Apartments, according to the Tallahassee Police Department.

The following morning, while traveling on Miccosukee, "suspect(s)" fired into another vehicle, hospitalizing one man with non-life-threatening injuries, a TPD spokeswoman said.

Since the new year, there had been at least eight shootings in the capital city, according to an analysis of gun violence by the Democrat. These shootings have caused at least six injuries and three deaths.
