Article excerpt

Police are interviewing possible witnesses to a late morning shooting of a man found dead Wednesday at a Jacksonville apartment complex.

The victim, believed to be about 20 years old, was found after police were called about 11:30 a.m. to the Roosevelt Gardens apartments in the 700 block of Lincoln Court just east of Interstate 95 north of Eighth Street.

The man, whose name has not been verified by police, was shot at least once and was found in a grassy area at the center of the complex, said Sgt. Scott Dingee of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

"There's quite a few people we are going to be talking to," Dingee said.

Police had not identified any suspects by early afternoon, he said. He said there was evidence of bullet damage to at least one building in the complex.
