TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — UPDATE: The Tallahassee Police Department released additional details on shootings on West Pensacola Street late Saturday night.

The Tallahassee Police Department said it was conducting crowd control at multiple locations on West Pensacola Street.

With officers in the area, TPD said multiple individuals within the crowds began shooting at the Half-Time Liquors store located at 2101 West Pensacola Street and the Los Compadres restaurant located at 2102 West Pensacola Street.

A male victim who was struck by gunfire at the liquor store was rendered aid by law enforcement personnel, but the victim died from injuries sustained at the scene.

The police department confirmed eight other people were injured with varying severity of injuries.

Law enforcement officers did observe a male subject shooting into a large crowd and running towards the McDonald's at 2026 West Pensacola Street.

Two officers pursued the man and told the man to drop the weapon. The male subject was shot by law enforcement in order to stop the threat and prevent further people from being victims.

Police said the man that fled towards the fast-food restaurant sustained non life threatening injuries and was taken into custody.

TPD said its violent crimes unit assumed the investigation, and preliminary findings determined this to be an isolated incident.

During a press conference Sunday morning, Tallahassee Police Department chief Lawrence Revell confirmed three individuals are in custody including the man who was shot by law enforcement personnel.
