JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities says two people were killed and two others were wounded from a gun fight at an outdoor basketball court in Florida.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office tweeted Friday that multiple people started shooting at each other Thursday night at a basketball court in a city park.

Lt. Ellis Burns tells The Florida Times-Union that possibly a dozen bullets were fired.

The sheriff's office says there's no reason to believe the shooting was gang-related.
