Richland police confirm that a Tuesday shooting at Southeastern Freight Lines is connected to a murder in Jacksonville, Florida. 

Authorities say 50-year-old  Alfred Lindbergh Moore Tankersley shot and killed 50-year-old Marty Coffey in Jacksonville, before driving to Richland and shooting another man.  

The shooting in Richland happened around 6 p.m. Tuesday at the trucking company on Leggett Drive. 

Richland Police Chief Russel James said at least eight shots were fired into the victim's black Chevrolet Impala near the work site. 

The victim, a Southeastern Freight employee, then drove to the Richland Police Department for help. His name has not been released.

Ames said the alleged shooter is dead from a gunshot wound to the head. 

Witnesses said the gunman had been fired prior to the shooting. 

"He pulled up to the station, obviously, shot multiple times and said 'I need help, somebody shot me'. So that's where it started," said Chief James. "That's the information they got and they responded back up there, and then of course the business called and said look this guy just showed back up at the business, pulled in the parking lot." 

James said the victim was taken to UMMC with the serious and possibly life-threatening injuries.

50-year-old Marty Coffey was shot and killed at Old Dominion Freight Line in Jacksonville, Florida on Monday. 

According to Coffey's LinkedIn profile, he worked at Southeastern Freight in Richland as a Service Center Manager for 15 years, before leaving in 2014.
