Police: Attempted home invasion turns deadly early Saturday in Jacksonville

A man who police say was breaking windows and trying to get into a home off Old St. Augustine Road near Interstate 95 was shot to death early this morning, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Police say they got a call about a dispute at 3:19 a.m. and responded to the 12000 block of Attrill Road, but before they arrived there was a confrontation between someone who lives at the home and the person outside.

During the dispute, the man outside was shot and died, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Police say it appears it was an isolated incident, and there is no threat to people in the area.

People who were in the home are cooperating with the investigation.
