UPDATE: At the request of Shantytown, I’ve closed comments until all the details are worked out. This is a personal favor to Ian and Shantytown.

New Shantytown Sign

Details are sketchy but a man was shot and killed at Shantytown last night around 12:30. Whether it was inside, out back or out front is unknown. Whether is was a patron or bystander is unknown. Twitter is also quiet on the topic.

What I have heard on the SPAR Forum is Marianne & Ian (owners) and Tex (barkeep) are all ok. If anyone has details you can post them here. Also these forum posts are following the news:

SPAR Council and Metro Jacksonville .
