One man who was shot died after he had a heart attack before he could be loaded into a helicopter.

On Monday, the sheriff’s office confirmed to Channel 2 that the second victim died over the weekend.


Deputies identified the victims as 55-year-old Marvin Bridges, Jr. and 54-year-old Kip Harris.

Family members of Bridges spoke to Channel 2′s Justin Carter after the shooting.

“He took care of people, so I really don’t understand how this could happen,” said Christion Bridges, the victims’ son. “He was giving, caring, loving and he shared with the community. I don’t know anyone who would do that.”

Deputies told Channel 2 Action News the shooting is still under investigation and no one has been arrested.
