Here is how the flash mob got started, according to the Times-Union:
It started with officers being called to the Sampson Road subdivision in the 12600 block just before 10 p.m. They radioed for help to provide crowd and traffic control, according to the police report.
As police cleared the scene, they learned a 20-year-old was at Shands Jacksonville saying he had been shot in the right leg as he was leaving the party. He told officers he heard gunshots as he reached Sampson and Percy roads, so he started running, then realized he had been shot.
He said he didn’t see a gun or anyone who could have shot him since “the crowd of people was so large,” according to the report.
The Sampson Road homeowner couldn’t be reached for comment. Neighbor Cynthia Cue said she didn’t hear any gunshots that night but heard sirens as police arrived to handle what she was told was a party mimicking the new movie, “Project X.” That film follows three high school students who throw an unforgettable party that gets way out of hand.
Most of the people in the video, who appear to be teenagers, were riding around the store on shopping carts, throwing produce and mugging for the camera.
