JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Neighbors say six shots rang out at Shirley Oaks neighborhood in Oceanway Friday afternoon.



Five people were shot and four of those lost their lives, authorities said.
One of the dead, an adult male, is the suspect in the case, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
According to Mike Bruno, JSO's Director of Investigations and Homeland Security, the surviving victim is suffering from a life-threatening gunshot wound and is currently in surgery.
Children are among the victims, police said.
JSO received a 911 call just before four p.m. and came out to the 1300 block of South Shirley Oaks Drive.
Police have not made next-of-kin notifications and are still working to identify all victims.
There was a truck packed full of boxes in the driveway and Bruno said that the shooting was a possible reaction to a domestic issue at the home.

JSO: 4 dead, 1 injured after murder-suicide in north JacksonvilleJacob Rodriguez November 13, 2015

Six months ago, a pregnant Megan Hiatt posted this message on Facebook about the father of the twins she was about to have: “He’s my rock, my heart, my love, my ride or die, my handsome man, my one and only, my forever.”
Her “forever” man was Gawain Rushane Wilson.
Police say Wilson, 28, shot Megan, the 5-month-old twins, Hayden Rose and Kayden Reese, and their grandfather, Travis James Hiatt, 49, Friday in his Northside home. He then turned the gun on himself.
Megan, 22, was the only survivor. She is being treated for her injuries at UF Health Jacksonville.
Police released the identities of the victims Saturday but gave no further information about the circumstances of the murder-suicide Friday afternoon.
The shootings occurred at Wilson’s home at 1342 South Shirley Oaks Drive, police said. It is not clear if Megan and Wilson were married. The babies have their mother’s last name.
A pickup truck with boxes in the bed was seen backed into the driveway of the home Friday, but police would not speculate when asked if Megan was moving out.
However, there is evidence that Wilson had issues with domestic violence.
Two women filed for injunctions for protection against Wilson in 2013 and 2014, according to court records. One was for “dating violence” and the other was for “domestic violence without children.” Megan Hiatt was not involved in either case.
His address at the time of both injunctions was Mayport Naval Station. He bought the Northside house about a year ago.
The twins were born June 8, and their mother filled her Facebook page with their photos.
“What an amazing family photo! Congratulations on your two beautiful baby girls. Great job mom and dad!” a comment on the photo said.
Megan also is a twin. On her birthday Oct. 15 she left this post about her twin, Tyler: “You know the best thing about having a twin? We get to share our birthday for eternity! ... Thanks for being an AMAZING uncle! And helping me with the girls so I can go to doctors appointments and run errands!”
Tyler Hiatt changed his profile picture Saturday to one with him and his father.
A friend commented: “Love you so much Tyler. Your Dad was an amazing man. A real hero.”
His dad’s Facebook page includes a picture of him holding his granddaughters.
“Awwww, so sweet! Grandpa looks like he’s in love with a couple little girls,” a comment on the picture said.
The investigation into the shooting is still active although police said they believe Wilson was the only shooter involved.
