One person was shot in what police described as an armed dispute Wednesday afternoon on Jacksonville’s Westside. The shooting happened on Glendas Meadow Drive north of 103rd Street. The Sheriff’s Office said multiple shots were fired, and one person was shot. That person’s injuries were not believed to be life-threatening. Neighbors told News4Jax it started as an argument between what appeared to be two groups of young people. Erik Avanier spoke to News4Jax crime and safety analyst Ken Jefferson about the video. “Well what stands out is that the shooters are ruthless and they’re careless,” Jefferson said. “This is a neighborhood highly populated with familes, bullets are flying everywhere, the bullets can stray away from their intended target and go through homes and hit innocent victims. That’s the most scariest part. “But let me be clear about this one part, had the police rolled up while this was actually going on and they were told that there were young people or young children with these weapons, it would not matter because that gun could hurt a police officer or anyone else, so they would have to take matters into their own hands, as far as possibly using deadly force if they had to.” [full article]
