A man was flown to the hospital on Wednesday morning after a “targeted” shooting in Tradition, Port St. Lucie police said.
The Port St. Lucie Police Department posted on Facebook that officers responded to a home in the 11000 block of Southwest Stockton Place, located in the Town Park at Tradition community, just before 7 a.m.
Police said a man was in his driveway when the shooter came up and shot him several times, before taking off in a vehicle.
The victim, whose name and age have not been released, was flown to HCA Florida Lawnwood Hospital in serious condition.
“This appears to be a targeted attack and there is no immediate threat to the surrounding community,” the police department said on Facebook.
Tradition Preparatory High School, which is located about a mile and a half from the community, was on a code red lockdown Wednesday morning. However, a front office staff member said that, as of 8:15 a.m., the lockdown has been lifted and school is now operating as normal.
