Wave of Violence Hits Neighborhood; Neighborhood around Kings Road Has Its 4th Violent Crime in 5 Days


A half-mile area around Kings Road had its fourth known violent crime in five days Sunday night, with two happening at the same home.

A man was shot in front of the house in the 1700 block of West Fourth Street about 9:30 p.m. by an unknown gunman, Lt. Jeff White said. The victim was able to drive a few blocks away and call police.

He was taken to Shands Jacksonville with non-life-threatening injuries.

Thursday night, police were called when shots were fired into the same home.

Any link between the two shootings has yet to be determined.

"It's still under investigation," White said. "We're looking into that right now."

Just across Kings Road, a man was shot in the leg Wednesday afternoon in the 1700 block of Whitner Street. The following night, a woman's body was found in the garage of a vacant house in the 1500 block of West Seventh Street.

WESTSIDE APARTMENTS EVACUATED AFTER FIRE

At least 12 units had to be evacuated after an early morning fire Monday at Canterbury Gardens apartments on the Westside, according to the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department.

The accidental fire that started in a downstairs unit and spread into the attic space of the building displaced 36 people, who are being assisted by the Red Cross and the fire department's emergency preparedness division, said department spokesman Tom Francis.

The fire call from the 1591 S. Lane Ave. complex came in shortly after midnight.

When firefighters arrived, flames had spread into the common attic above the units and was burning through the roof. Firefighters used ladder-mounted hoses to douse the fire. There are 14 apartment units in the building, Francis said.

He said one person who lived in an apartment suffered minor injuries but did not have to be taken to a hospital. There were no other injuries.
