A Jacksonville firefighter was wounded Tuesday evening during an apparent drive-by shooting when someone opened fire at a fire truck refueling outside a firehouse on the city's Southside, sources tell First Coast News.
At some point, firefighters were pumping gas outside Station 28 near Southside Boulevard and Hogan Road when someone driving by apparently opened fire, Randy Wyse, president of the Jacksonville Association of Firefighters, told FCN in a phone interview.
About five or six shots were fired, police said. In the wake of the shooting, authorities have placed fire stations across the city on high alert.
The reaction when White Hispanic George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin to death wasn't all they had hoped for, because:
- George Zimmerman wasn't technically a honkey and
- Little Trayyyyvon was shot while trying to fracture Zimmerman's skull on the sidewalk.
Now, having sown the wind, they get to reap the whirlwind. Al "The Mouth That Roared" Sharpton is backpedaling like Lance Armstrong on crack this week, trying to get away from the execution of the two police officers in New York City. He's going to have this firefighter's wounding to deal with as well.
