On Monday a mass shooting incident in Florida left 11 people injured as informed by the Lakeland Police Department. Two victims are serious while nine others are suffering from non-life-threatening wounds.

Now the Lakeland Police Chief Sam Taylor informed to media about two serious victims “One is in surgery, and the other is either in surgery or headed to surgery”. Still no suspects have been identified, and the police catch no one.

In Tuesday morning’s press conference Taylor informed the media “However we have people and we are very interested in”. According to the police, they found the vehicle used by the suspects where they start firing.

Further Taylor said They are very confident that there are at least four suspects and two of them did the firing from the car. At 3.43 p.m. Police responded to the calls near Iowa Avenue North and Plum Street.

All the injured people are adult men between 20 and 35 years old, said to the police. Police also informed that the shooting was intentional, it was not random at all.

The chief police officer said, “We don’t believe there’s any reason that the public would need to be concerned right now; we think that the individuals in the car shot at and shot who they wanted to shoot.”

Police officials also said that they found the marijuana at the location, maybe before the shooting, and there was marijuana trading at the time of the incident. However, police still don’t have enough evidence to make the connection between marijuana and suspects.
