(Newser) – A shooting outside a Florida laundromat left six people injured on Sunday, three of them critically. Per WPLG, cops in Jacksonville say a gunman drove up to the business not far from where the hometown NFL team, the Jaguars, were playing the Houston Texans, and opened fire around 12:30pm. The victims ranged in age from from 20 to 70. According to the Tampa Bay Times, the shots came from the vehicle's passenger side. Five of the victims were transported to a hospital by paramedics, while the sixth drove to the hospital. Police have not suggested what a motive may have been. (In a Texas shooting this month, an argument at a party reportedly lead to a backyard shooting that killed four.)
