JACKSONVILLE, Fla. —
An innocent man enjoying the night on his porch with friends is murdered when a gunfight broke out around 11:30 p.m. on the 1400 block of West 10th Street on Jacksonville’s Northside.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office says that 32-year-old Frank Harrity later died at Shands after an unknown amount of bullets struck him.
“Two individuals were walking down the street. A vehicle approached them, opened fire on the two individuals walking. They, in turn, drew weapons and fired back at the car,” Lt. Rob Schoonover said.
Police believe one of the bullets fired from the car struck Harrity, according to testimony given by his two friends who were also on the porch.
The only fact known about the vehicle is that it was dark-colored.
Police say the two black males who were walking acted in self-defense because the people in the car rolled up near them and fired first.
They’re looking for all of the individuals involved and urge anyone with information to call JSO or Crime Stoppers to make an anonymous tip.
