Dade Street Shooting: Two Men Lose Lives in Suspected Homicide

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Two individuals have lost their lives in a case being investigated as homicides following a shooting incident that took place on Dade Street on Tuesday night.

Both men were discovered with gunshot injuries on the 1100 block of Dade Street, close to the Lawrence-Gregory Community Center, shortly before 9:30 p.m.

This information was provided by the Tallahassee Police Department (TPD). Regrettably, one of the men succumbed to his injuries at the scene, while the other passed away after being transported to a hospital.

The shooting occurred in the vicinity of Florida State University, near the Frenchtown area and the heart of the city’s capital.

TPD’s Public Information Officer, Alicia Turner, conveyed that this is an ongoing investigation and that updates will be shared as soon as more details are available.

At present, no arrests have been made as per TPD’s statement, but their investigators are diligently pursuing leads. As of 11 p.m., the scene remains active and well-staffed with numerous officers present.

The area around the community center has been cordoned off with police tape, and a collection of evidence markers can be seen in the parking lot in front of the facility.

Several of these markers are positioned around a silver sedan, parked with its doors open in close proximity to the center, near the junction of Dade Street and Griffin Street. Law enforcement officers are meticulously examining the vehicle, using flashlights to inspect its contents.

Further down Dade Street, beyond the immediate view of the first vehicle, officers are inspecting another car, a dark-colored sedan, also with its doors ajar. This second vehicle is situated near the intersection of Brewer Street and Dade Street.

WCTV is keeping a record of gun-related incidents in Tallahassee. According to their data, this marks the 15th fatal shooting and the 17th and 18th fatalities due to gun violence in the city’s capital this year.
