St. Johns County deputies release new composite sketches of June armed robbery suspects

St. Johns County deputies release new composite sketches of June armed robbery suspects

Nearly two months after an armed robbery at a Circle K convenience store, the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office is releasing new composite sketches of the two suspects involved.   On June 26th, the two men entered the convenience store on State Road 16 and lingered in the store until other customers walked out.   One of the men then pulled out a gun at the counter and demanded cash from the register, while the other man appeared to be keeping a lookout during the robbery.   After the clerk complied, the two men fled on foot, heading eastbound on State Road 16.   Deputies say the two men were described as black males. One was in his 30’s, 170 pounds, and with a mole or birthmark on his left cheek. The other is about 40 years of age and 200 pounds.   If you recognize either of these men, you're urged to contact Detective Mark Kapelka at the Sheriff's Office at (904) 209-3987.

One dead, one hurt after shooting erupts from dispute on King Street

One dead, one hurt after shooting erupts from dispute on King Street

A dispute among several people in the street escalated in to a shooting, leaving one man dead and another with non-life threatening injuries. Jacksonville police say it’s unclear at this time whether the men who were shot were actually suspects as well. The man who died is a black male who’s around 27-years-old, and the man who was hurt is a black male who’s around 32-years-old. The victims were found in different locations. It’s unclear at this time what the reason for the dispute was. The shooting happened on King Street, north of I-10. JSO has no description of the outstanding suspects, except they’re black men. A black vehicle, possibly a Buick, was seen leaving the area right after the incident. Police are actively trying to find anyone who witnessed this incident or knows what happened. If you have any information, you’re asked to contact JSO at 904-630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.

JAX Chamber supports review of Confederate monuments

JAX Chamber supports review of Confederate monuments

After Jacksonville’s City Council President says she will propose moving Confederate memorials, monuments, and markers off public property, the business community is showing a level of support. Council President Anna Lopez Brosche has ordered an inventory of all of these Confederate tributes in the City, with the intent to then introduce legislation moving them from City land to educational settings. JAX Chamber Board Chair Darnell Smith says the JAX Chamber supports the inventory, and wants a “thoughtful” look at who is honored in the City. “We believe in the dignity, goodness and respect of all citizens. We vehemently condemn individuals and groups that promote the despicable acts of prejudice, hate, discrimination, bigotry and racism which have no place in our community,” Smith says. But Smith says the City should also be looking at who is “missing” from City honors. “Discussions should include how we heal wounds that may still persist from our past. Among those should be a consideration of how we memorialize our city’s history in public spaces, and will most certainly involve additional tributes to Jacksonville’s historical leaders,” he says. Smith further says the city needs to look at how to celebrate “our storied past” and write new chapters in the city’s history “with a united purpose”. The proposal from Brosche comes in large part in response to the violence in Charlottesville. Many on the City Council are not taking a public position at this time, although some have come out on either side. Mayor Lenny Curry says he is waiting to review and take a position if or when the legislation gets to his desk.

Trump issues fresh warning to North Korea, says U.S. military is “locked and loaded”

President Donald Trump on Friday again warned North Korea not to attack American interests or allies, as Mr. Trump tweeted out photos of U.S. military forces on the Pacific island of Guam, aiming his remarks directly at the leader of the Pyongyang regime, Kim Jong Un, again saying that any military action by North Korea will meet with a swift and serious U.S. response.

“If he does anything with respect to Guam or any place else that is an American territory or an American ally, he will truly regret it, and regret it fast,” the President said in a Friday afternoon [More]
