Prince Holland, 13, is the 11th child to die from gun violence this year in Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Sheriff’s office is working nonstop to figure out who killed a 13-year-old during a drive-by shooting Saturday night.

Prince Holland is the latest child to be killed by gun violence this year in Jacksonville. A football coach was driving Holland and three others — ages 11, 14 and 15 — home from football tryouts.

A memorial marks where the shooting happened at Moncrief Road West and New Kings Road, along with a Crime Stoppers sign.

There is an outpouring of support for the Holland family during this tragic time, including support from Haraka Carswell of the Silent Women Speaking Foundation.

“Whatever I can do to ease that pain, that’s what I want to do.” Carswell said. “I know its a hard process. I haven’t personally lost a child but I know in the grieving moment you still need someone to hold you up.”

The Holland family is one of 11 families who have lost a child to gun violence in 2022, News4JAX records show.

Student Kaleb Floyd, 17, was killed during a shooting that injured other teens – in March. Jon Dantzler, 17, was shot and killed in April at McGirt’s Creek Park. In September, 17-year-old Elijah McDonald was shot and killed at a Woodstock apartment complex.

Out of the 11 cases, two arrests have been made.
