A shooting took place early this morning in Gainesville. Sheriff’s authorities say Regina Pines was a guest at 4309 SW 68th Terrace when she answered the door, and was shot in the neck by an unknown suspect. Alachua County Sheriff’s office public information officer Todd Kelly says the sheriff’s office is doing everything it can to find the suspect. Pines is currently being treated at a local hospital for a non-life threatening injury and is expected to recover.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch is visiting Orlando to meet with prosecutors, first responders and families of the victims of the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history. The trip Tuesday comes as the Justice Department continues investigating the June 12 massacre at the Pulse nightclub, in which 49 people died and dozens were wounded. Federal investigators who have conducted hundreds of interviews haven't ruled out charges against others in connection with the shooting and say they're still trying to determine why Omar Mateen, who died in a gun battle with police, picked as his target a popular gay nightclub.
