QUINCY, Fla. (WCTV) - The Quincy Police Department says it responded to a shooting on Stewart Street Wednesday evening.

The shooting happened in front of a house on Stewart Street around 6 p.m., according to police.

QPD says it is investigating this shooting as a homicide. One person was killed in this shooting, QPD says.

Police are not releasing any information about the victim right now, but witnesses, including family members, tell WCTV it was a young man who was killed.

QPD Chief Glenn Sapp says they have yet to identify a suspect and they are asking anyone with information about this incident to contact them.

“This is a heavily walked and driven area in the inner-city of Quincy, so we’re certain that there is someone who saw something or heard something that could help us solve this crime,” Sapp said.

Dozens of people were gathered at the scene, alongside some of the family. Many of them were very emotional and praying together. Meanwhile, one community member, who says he knew the victim, tells WCTV the violence was senseless.

“I want to send a message around Gadsden County and the surrounding areas that the senseless killing and violence must stop,” Chavien Lockwood said. “It must cease now and we’re counting on QPD to be accountable and represent us in this situation.”

QPD would not identify the victim, citing Marcy’s Law. Multiple people at the scene told WCTV it was a young man in his 20′s.
