Victim shot in Jacksonville’s St. Nicholas neighborhood

The victim of a Saturday morning shooting died while being treated for his wounds.

Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Shawn Coarsey said the young male believed to be 16 to 18 years old was gambling with dice with other people in the courtyard of the Landon Imperial Apartments about 9:45 a.m. Saturday at 1913 Art Museum Drive.

As the male was gambling with the others, two other males approached and shot and robbed the group, taking their money. The robbers then ran away from the scene and Coarsey said police have not arrested any suspects and continue to search the area.
