LAKE CITY, Fla. (WCJB) – A man whom Colombia County MPs have yet to identify was shot dead by a security guard after opening fire at a Lake City casino.
Early in the morning, Columbia County MPs responded to a shooting at Q-Time 777 Casino on East Duval Ave near Cider. Dr. Witnesses told MPs the man was involved in an argument with someone at the casino and was asked to leave.
He later came back with a gun and opened fire in the building.
"At some point he started taking multiple shots inside the company where other customers were," said Steven Khachigan, public information officer. "At that point, an armed guard caught the suspect in gunfire."
As a result, the suspect was shot and died on the spot. No one was injured while he was firing multiple shots.
The Columbia County Sheriff's Department is still investigating the situation.
