In a heart-wrenching incident that unfolded in the Duclay neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida, on Easter Sunday, a family dispute turned deadly, claiming the lives of three people, including a 12-year-old child, and leaving another critically injured. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office (JSO) has released the identities of two victims, Yaniv Grinberg, 45, and his son Israel Grinberg, 12, shedding light on the devastating event that has left the community in shock.

The tragic episode began just before 4:30 p.m. on Sunday when law enforcement was called to the 7100 block of Preston Pines Trail following reports of a shooting involving multiple victims. Upon arrival, officers encountered a woman with multiple gunshot wounds at the entrance of the neighborhood. This woman, believed to be the mother of the shooter, managed to escape and alert the authorities that her son was actively shooting family members inside a nearby home.

As the situation unfolded, officers discovered Yaniv and Israel Grinberg, alongside the 22-year-old shooter, deceased within the residence. The preliminary investigation suggests that the shooter, who is the other son of Yaniv Grinberg, committed suicide after the attack. Two other children, aged 14 and 16, were found hiding in the home but were unharmed.

The incident reportedly escalated from a verbal altercation that took a violent turn. According to Undersheriff Shawn Coarsey, the altercation began with the son using racial slurs, which his father, Yaniv, objected to. The disagreement spiraled out of control when the son, who is multiracial, armed himself with tactical gear and firearms, and fatally shot his father and brother before taking his own life.

The critically injured woman was rushed to a local hospital where she underwent surgery and remains in critical condition. The law enforcement’s investigation revealed two firearms at the scene—a handgun and a long rifle. The family had a history of mental health issues, which were noted by the police, though the JSO had no prior interactions with the shooter concerning mental health concerns.

The neighborhood was cordoned off for several hours as the JSO conducted their investigation, leaving many residents alarmed and seeking answers. This tragic event has once again highlighted the devastating impact of domestic disputes escalating to violence and the importance of addressing mental health issues within the community.

As the investigation continues, the community mourns the loss of Yaniv and Israel Grinberg, remembering them in light of this tragic event that has left an indelible mark on the hearts of those in Jacksonville’s Duclay neighborhood. The JSO urges anyone with additional information to come forward as they work to piece together the circumstances that led to this tragic Easter shooting.
