An altercation between two men in their 20s resulted in a shooting that left one of the two men severely injured late Thursday night in Espanola.

“We didn’t have a whole lot of details, we were getting conflicting stories from the witnesses,” a Flagler County Sheriff’s spokesperson said this morning. “There was a physical altercation between two males, ended up with one male being shot.”

The shooting was called into 911 at 9:58 p.m. It took place at 98 Knox Jones Avenue. Traces of blood were reported outside the church near there.

“Last I heard he was in stable condition, but it’s an active investigation,” the spokesperson said. “No arrests have been made but they do think they have the two males identified.” The sheriff’s office is not yet releasing the identities of the two men.

The victim was flown to Halifax hospital in Daytona Beach by Trauma One, UF Health’s emergency helicopter, which landed at the sports fields near Espanola. Flagler County Fire Rescue crews responded to the incident.

“Last night crews at Station 51 awoke to nearby gun shots,” Flagler County Professional Firefighters’ Local 4337’s Facebook page reported this morning. “Minutes later someone began banging on the front door to the station. Crews found a victim with multiple gunshots wounds to the chest and arms.”

    Just what does a person in a western shoot think is going to happen after shooting someone, do they think they did the right thing? does it dawn on them they will be tracked down and spend 20+ to life in jail, how does that settle the score? considering you live in a lifestyle that you think have to carry a gun and think you have to protect your self. (You are the problem) and have very little regard to life. The rest of the world doesn’t live like this!

    It’s a shame that Fire Flight isn’t sitting on that field. Anything after 8PM requires outside resources which means extra time.

    Of course the county is to interested in overpaying staff. They should be fixing our budget so we have adequate in county resources.

    If we keep demanding accountability from the FCBOCC and Coffey and put their feet to the fire then finally we will have the helicopter service we pay for, other than overpaid county employees positions and other taxpayers monies waste. I see those FCBOCC at work and the only thing they do is bow to their appointed Manager Coffey no matter what unscrupulous proposals he presents for approval. When our elected one’s will take a stand and defend our resident taxpayers interest and quality of life? Maybe we need to keep the current coward one’s booted until they do hear US the people.
    I like the wild wild west but only in the movies!

    Concerned Citizen… are referring to over paid county employees and not our firefighters and paramedics right?! Because they are far from overpaid?!

  7. LAMO says:

    @flaglerlive why is this being kept soo secretive???

  8. LAMO says:

    Too quite not to be a cover-up. FDLE where you at???

  9. Outsider says:

    So a girl makes a false kidnapping claim and everyone wants restitution from a 13 year old. These yahoos shoot each other and the same people are demanding we spend millions more so a helicopter can fly their asses to a level one trauma center. Go figure.
