Jacksonville man gunned down at his Baymeadows Road home

A man was shot to death in the doorway of his Baymeadows Road home Sunday night when he responded to someone banging on his front door, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

The victim, who appeared to be in his 40s, was shot multiple times about 6:45 p.m. at The Boxwood at Baymeadows, 4915 Baymeadows Road. He died from his wounds after being taken to UF Health Jacksonville, said Sgt. Jay Farhat of the Sheriff’s Office Homicide Unit.

“Witnesses at the scene are telling us there was some type of altercation. It appears the shooter is going to be a black male in a dark two-door vehicle. …That individual was banging on the [victim’s] door and at some point made it into our victim’s apartment, shot him and fled the scene,” said Farhat, emphasizing it was early in the investigation.

Farhat said detectives were getting a search warrant so they could go inside the victim’s apartment. Detectives also were doing door-to-door talking to residents in the condominium/apartment complex, he said.

It was possible someone else might have been with the victim inside the apartment when he was shot, Farhat said.

Farhat said it was possible but not known whether the victim knew his killer.

“It doesn’t appear that it was random. There was some reason that individual was there. We just don’t know why,” Farhat said.

The shooting happened in a building at the back of the condominium/apartment complex.

“Unfortunately, there are not a whole lot of eyewitnesses. Just people who heard shots. But we’re working through that and obviously, if anybody knows anything about this we urge them to contact Crime Stoppers or the Sheriff’s Office,” Farhat said.

Farhat said police didn’t immediately know how man shots were fired. A neighbor called 911 after the shooting, he said.

Police expected to be at the scene through the night searching for evidence. Officers blocked off the driveway leading into the complex and were talking to residents as they came home for the evening.

“Oh, my God. Somebody got killed? Here? I can’t believe that happened here,” exclaimed one woman,who drove up in a mini-van.

Anyone with information can contact the Sheriff’s Office at (904) 630-0500 or JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. To remain anonymous and possibly receive a reward, call Crime Stoppers at (866) 845-TIPS.
