  • Police are searching for three suspects after a man is beaten and shot near Edward Waters College early this morning. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says the attack happened around 2 a.m. at Sassy's Wings on Kings Road, but it was the man's roommate who actually called for help around five hours later. 'The victim was beaten severely, so he might have not known how bad he was,' said a JSO lieutenant briefing reporters at the scene. According to that lieutenant, the victim - identified only as a white man in his 20's - was walking through the area when three individuals stopped him. Those suspects then beat him up, robbed him and shot him. No suspect description has been given at this time by JSO. The victim is being treated at UF Health for injuries to his face as well as the bullet wound. JSO isn't saying where the man was shot but did say his injuries aren't life-threatening. It's not clear at this point if the suspect knew his attackers. JSO is actively investigating the area, including gathering any video footage and speaking to potential witnesses. Anyone with information is asked to call JSO at 904-630-0500 or email JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. Those who wish to remain anonymous and possibly qualify for a cash reward can call Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS (8477). 
  • While President Donald Trump seems never to be at a loss for words, both spoken and tweeted, a linguistics professor at Georgetown University says there is one phase that does seem to crop up in his public speaking more often than others.  “Believe me” is the most common two-word phrase the president has used in public in his almost 100-day administration, according to a story from CNN. The network asked Georgetown linguistics professor Jennifer Sclafani to study Trump’s remarks during the past three months. Sclafani said she found that Trump said “believe me” 26 times in speeches since his inauguration. 'Trump doesn't bother to get bogged down by details,' Sclafani told CNN after studying the president’s speech patterns. 'He presents himself as a visionary type of leader, focused solely on his vision for the future of the country.' Click here to read the entire story.

  • Jonathan Gonzalez loved being outside. Like many 13-year-olds, the Wellington, Florida, resident loved football, basketball, fishing and just being with friends. On Sunday he told his mother, Maria, he was going outside for a bit. Like she told him every time he’d go out to play, she said “Be careful.” Gonzalez recounted how her son, who died in a dirt bike crash, was adored by everyone around him. “You would come in my neighborhood and there’d be 15 to 20 kids asking for him. I’d get so aggravated,” she said first laughing at the memory, then crying. “Now I don’t have that.” >> Read more trending news At 1:40 p.m. Sunday, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue crews responded to a call that a dirt bike had crashed into a canal near Oakberry Circle and Oak Hamlet Lane, just north of Forest Hill Boulevard. Jonathan Gonzalez was flown to a hospital as a trauma patient and then died. The 13-year-old’s mother said he was on the back of the dirt bike with a friend near their home. The crash remains under investigation, she said. Gonzalez said her son was the baby of the family. He had two older sisters and a few half siblings, all of whom adored him, she said. Gonzalez said his two sisters go to Palm Beach Central High School and that even their friends at 16 and 17 years old wanted to hang out with her boy, as did his dozens of friends from school and a city football league. “He was loved by so many people, so many coaches and teachers, and kids. And the kids’ mothers,” she said. “He was a respectful young kid with a big heart.” On Monday, the Palm Beach County School District said there were grief counselors at Emerald Cove Middle School where Jonathan was a seventh-grader. Michelle Kaplan, a mother of one of the boys who played on a city football league team with Gonzalez, said the whole team is devastated. She said the team was very tight-knit, constantly texting each other. On Sunday, she said, she got a call from her son Joshua telling her the news. “He’s gone. I was just playing basketball with him yesterday,” her son told her. A GoFundMe account was created to help the family pay for funeral costs. Donations exceeded the $10,000 goal in less than 24 hours. “That’s how much you know this kid was loved and cared for,” Gonzalez said.
