Jacksonville, FL - A Jacksonville homeowner who was apparently asleep in her bedroom is shot by a suspected burglar just a few days after being held at gunpoint.
Police responded to the home on E. 24th Street, near Talleyrand Avenue in Longbranch shortly before 2 AM Wednesday in reference to a shooting.
Police say a man entered the victim's home through a window and fired four shots. The police report we obtained says the woman changed her story multiple times, later saying two men shot at her through a window while she was standing in the hallway.
We are told the victim was transported to UF Health and is expected to recover from her physical injuries.
While Police have not provided a description of the suspects in this apparent home invasion, the victim of this crime was the victim of another home invasion robbery Saturday.
We obtained that police report as well, where police were dispatched around 4 AM to a burglary in progress call.
The victim says to men began banging on her front door. They went to the back door when she didn’t answer, eventually kicking it in. The report says they then demanded money at gunpoint, threatening to tape her up and shoot her in the head if she did not comply.
The woman told them she didn’t have money, but they said they would drive her to the ATM. Police arrived as the victim and two suspects were leaving the home and both suspects fled when the officer identified as police.
The officer says both of those suspects are 5’9-6’. Suspect #1 is medium build with short dreadlocks. He was wearing a black t-shirt. Suspect #2 is slender build with a low haircut and was wearing a white tank top style shirt.
Police have not yet determined if these two incidents are related.
