Gun Fired in Dunkin’ Donuts on Int’l Speedway Blvd

ⓒ AskFlagler

DAYTONA BEACH – The Dunkin’ Donuts location on International Speedway Blvd in Daytona Beach was the site of a shooting Monday morning, according to a statement from the Daytona Beach Police Department. The incident occurred just before 8:30 am.

The Daytona Beach Police Department has advised that two individuals, aged 15 and 16, have been arrested in connection to the shooting. Both are said to be students at nearby Mainland High School.

The 16 year-old was charged with discharging a firearm in public, illegally carrying a concealed waeapon, possession of ammunition by a felon, violation of probation, and criminal mischief. The 15 year-old, meanwhile, was only charged with marijuana possession by a person under 21 years old (less than 20g).

Not much is currently known about what happened and why, but the DBPD has stated that no one was injured in the shooting. Upon arrival, the store manager provided police with a description of the suspects. Officers were then able to locate them near the store, and locate the firearm believed to be used in the shooting.

Because the store is just next to Mainland High School, the campus was placed on lockdown in the immediate aftermath. Daytona State College is also just across the street, and NewsDaytonaBeach.com is still waiting on word from campus security about any measures that may have been taken.

As of Monday morning the Dunkin’ lobby where the shooting occurred is closed. An employee was spotted sitting in their vehicle in the parking lot over two hours after the incident.

    Sounds like these two idiots need to be taken behind the wood shed and taught a lesson on behavior. Apparently the 16 yr old doesn’t believe in following the law because of priors, there may still be hope for the 15 yr old. But then again it’s the company he keeps that will continue to get him in trouble. If the 16 yr old got the gun from his household, then his guardian needs to be held accountable and charged as well.
