Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said a man is expected to be okay after he was shot while driving on 103rd Street.
According to detectives, at around 2:02 a.m. Monday, officers responded to the area and located a man with gunshot wounds to his shoulder and neck. He was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The early investigation revealed that the man, who is in his early 20s, was driving a car westbound on 103rd Street with 4 to 5 other people inside the car. At the same time, a black, 4-door sedan accelerated eastbound before shooting out the window and driving off. No one else in the victim’s car was hit.
JSO said it’s actively looking for the suspect vehicle and believes this drive-by shooting could be related to other shootings in the area. However, detectives don’t believe the immediate public is at risk at this time.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call JSO at 904-630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS.
