Demontre Franklin was 15 years-old when he was shot and killed outside the Eureka Garden Apartments on Jacksonville’s westside. Jacksonville Sheriff’s officers found the teen with multiple gun shot wounds in his back. Now, six years later, the family still seeks justice.
In the past week, six shootings have injured at least eight people, and three are now dead in Arlington. This includes the shooting at a youth football game Sunday that hurt a 7-year-old and killed the boy’s father.
