Clay County Sheriff’s Office personnel are at the scene of a shooting at 2145 Kingsley Avenue in Orange Park. Two people are involved (an adult male and adult female) in the incident and both have life threatening injuries. The situation is contained.
No other people are involved or in danger at this time and the scene has been secured. The location is the Life Care Center located west of the hospital and east of Blanding Blvd. No evacuation of Life Care Center patients is necessary and no other persons were injured or threatened.
The Life Care Center property is private property and the media will not be permitted to enter the grounds. A CCSO representative will meet with members of the press across the street from the Life Care Center if parking is permitted for media in the business parking lots there. Additional info on an exact location is forthcoming (most likely the Italian restaurant parking lot, Bistro).
Should you be contacted by family members or friends of Life Care Center patients, please reassure them that the danger has passed and that the scene is secure. Information will be provided to patients and their families as soon as possible.
