I guess firefighters are ‘racists’ now according to the race-whores.
Department Station 28 was shot at in a drive-by shooting on Tuesday night.
Jacksonville Association of Firefighters President Randy Wyse confirmed to Action News that firefighters called him and told him about the shooting.
According to Lt. Jackson Short of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, five or six firefighters were outside of Station 28 pumping gas at the city gas pumps next to the station at the time of the shooting.
A firefighter was hit in the arm by a ricochet bullet, but his injury is minor and he will not need stitches, Short said.
Short said JSO believes the firefighters were targeted because they were in a very well-lit area and clearly dressed in uniform. Short also said there is no reason to connect this drive-by to what’s happening elsewhere in the country, like the fatal shooting of two officers in New York.
JFRD Chief Ivan Mote said this incident may be a copycat from previous shootings on uniformed officers, not just across the country but locally as well.
“We’re concerned about the safety of our firefighters. Of course our job is to protect people from incidents such as this, so first and foremost, we want to make sure our crews are safe,” Mote said.
