Lakeland, Florida (WFLA) — Florida police are investigating a shooting that injured 10 people Monday afternoon.
Investigators said the shooting occurred around 3:43 p.m. in the city of Lakeland, about 35 miles east of Tampa.
Police said 10 people were killed, including two with serious injuries and eight with non-life-threatening injuries. One was shot in the abdomen, the other in the face.
