Jacksonville police on Tuesday released surveillance photos of a man and an SUV sought in connection with a deadly shooting Monday at a gas station on Edgewood Avenue.
The shooting happened around 9 a.m. Monday at the Shell gas station at the corner of Edgewood Avenue West and Avenue B.
According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, a man pulled up in a silver Nissan Rogue, got out and fired several shots into a car before driving off. Police said the woman sitting inside the car was struck multiple times and died.
“At this time, it appears that the victim was targeted while sitting in her vehicle,” Sgt. Adam Blinn said at a media briefing Monday morning.
In the images released by police, the man can be seen wearing a face mask and a hoodie and holding a handgun that appears to have an extended magazine.
The relationship between the gunman and the woman was not immediately known.
Neighbors have identified the victim, but News4Jax has chosen not to use her name until it has been confirmed by family. One of the victim’s neighbors, who did not wish to be identified, said the woman was in a rental car at the time of the shooting because her car was broken. The neighbor said he was not aware of her having any enemies.
“It was unbelievable,” the neighbor said of his reaction when he learned of the woman’s death. “We see her every morning with her son. She carried him to the nursery around here. She always come by here and I holler at her. It’s just unbelievable.”
He said the woman was his neighbor for a year.
“She had some friends come down there and visit her sometimes, and sometimes she would borrow my grill and cook with it and everything,” he said. “Other than that, she was quiet.”
Anyone who recognizes the man or SUV pictured is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 904-630-0500 or email [email protected]. To remain anonymous and receive a possible reward of up to $3,000, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS (8477).
