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.[audio:http://www.wuft.org/media/audio/mastrodicasa1.mp3]
