Gainesville man shot dead at The Point Apartments

Argument between neighbors led to incident, police said

A Gainesville man was shot and killed after an argument with his neighbor in an apartment complex three miles away from UF campus Friday, the Gainesville Police Department announced.

Law enforcement officials received a call at 1:20 p.m. Friday afternoon about gunshots at The Point Apartments, located at 3100 SW 35th Place, Gainesville. They found the victim and rushed him to UF Health Shands Hospital where he died.

The suspected shooter cooperated with investigations and is in custody, GPD spokesperson David Chudzik said. 

The shooting comes one week after another fatal incident at The Crossing at Santa Fe Apartments, where 18-year-old Cameron Gibbs was killed.

Chudzik said this shooting was unrelated to the recent string of violent crimes in the past week.

“There’s no danger to the public, but it seems like it's a neighbor altercation,” Chudzik said.

As of Friday afternoon, no arrests have been made in connection with the incident.
