Downtown Gainesville shooting leads officials to evaluate parking safety

By and

The Gainesville Police Department is looking for a third homicide suspect involved in a downtown parking garage shooting early Sunday morning. Artrel Dubose was taken to Shands at the University of Florida after being shot in the head by a Lake City resident. Dubose was pronounced dead midday Sunday. This is not the first fatal shooting in the city-owned parking garage. Another man was shot and killed in 2007. Gainesville City Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa says downtown Gainesville has seen added security.
