JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A woman is dead and police say they have a suspect in custody following a shooting at a restaurant on the Westside.
44-year-old Sheridan Veney has been arrested and charged with murder in the shooting. Police say he admitted to shooting and killing his estranged wife, Lisa Marie Veney.
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office responded to the Applebee's on Lane Avenue just before 8 p.m. Sunday night to reports of a woman shot in the entrance area of the restaurant. She was taken to a local hospital where she later died. Veney's 18-year-old daughter was apparently also there. She was also taken to the hospital but was not hurt.
We are still unsure about the motive for the shooting or the identity of the shooter.
Detectives say they have been interviewing the large crowd of people who witnessed the shooting.
There's been no indication of a motive for the shooting and we do not know the relationship between the shooter and victim, though police say they do believe the two knew each other.
