On Sunday, March 17, Saint Patrick's Day was celebrated worldwide. In Florida, near downtown Jacksonville Beach, three mass shootings took place that day.

In total, three unrelated shootings left one person dead and three others injured. As police reported on Monday, the first shooting took place near the Best Western Hotel at 7:50 p.m., when two people started shooting at each other. As a result, both involved in the fight were injured, as well as one innocent bystander.

At 8:13 a.m., more shots were heard when, according to police, a man began shooting while running past the businesses. Fortunately, no one was injured.

At 8:31 p.m., however, a third shooting took place, only a fatal one. It happened next to Sneakers Bar. Three suspects took part, and the police are still looking for them. The victim is a 21-year-old man.

"We've got a lot of work ahead of us to figure out everything, put all the pieces together," said Sgt. Tonya Tator quoted by ABC News.
