Jacksonville - Jacksonville Police are investigating after a young man was found dead in a silver vehicle on the Northside Wednesday night. Police say they found evidence at the scene that who ever shot the young man possibly walked up and shot the victim multiple times.
“There is evidence at the scene that states that the person was possibly sitting inside the car, so we don’t believe it’s going to be a drive by possibly a ‘Walk-Up’.” Says Sgt. Steve Rudlaff with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.
Police say they are still working to identify the victim who is described as a black man between 17 to 20 years old. JSO says the owner of the vehicle the man was found in belongs to a woman and they are hoping she can help them ID the victim.
At this time police say there were no witnesses to the incident and it’s too early in the investigation to know if the shooting was gang related.
JSO says if you have any information related to the incident to give them a call at 904-630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-8477.
