COPY-NFL player C.J. Spiller's relative gunman in deadly shooting spree

LAKE BUTLER, FL (RNN) - Three people died, including the gunman, after a deadly shooting at two locations in north Florida on Saturday.

Union County Sheriff Jerry Whitehead identified the gunman as Hubert Allen Jr., according to local TV station WCJB. The station also reported Allen was the step-grandfather of Buffalo Bills and former Clemson running back C.J. Spiller, who is a native of Lake Butler.

Allen shot four other people before taking his own life at his home, according to officials.

The first shooting happened just before 9:30 a.m. at Pritchett Trucking, where Whitehead said Allen was a former employee. WCJB reported the first victim, identified as David Griffis, is in critical condition at a Gainesville hospital.

Allen followed the trucking company's owner, Marvin Pritchett, to his ranch and fatally shot him in his vehicle, according to First Coast News. The gunman also shot Lewis Mabary Jr., who survived.

Allen fatally shot Rolando Gonzales Delgado at the ranch before going home and turning the gun on himself, according to officials.

Spiller - who graduated from Union County High School - finished his career at Clemson with 3,547 rushing yards and 32 touchdowns, including 1,212 and 12 TDs his senior year in 2009.

His third season in the NFL was his best as he rushed for 1,244 yards and scored six touchdowns last year.
