Shooting Death Makes 50th Homicide in the City This Year


A 43-year-old man was shot and killed late Sunday in the 2000 block of West 10th Street, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. Police did not release much information on Bernard Thomas Lowe's death. But officers were called to the scene near Kings Road about 10:30 p.m. Sunday after a friend went by to see Lowe and located him dead inside his home.

Neighbors said the home is known for people coming and going at all hours and that four to six shots were heard shortly after 10 p.m., according to Action News.

The homicide marks the city's 50 this year, past last year's pace of 47, according to the Times-Union's database at Jacksonville.com/homicides. It's also the 11th in the 32209 ZIP code.

MOTHER ARRESTED FOR BABY'S BROKEN BONES

A Jacksonville mother was arrested last week nearly a month after her 4-month-old boy suffered several unexplained broken bones.

Amanda N. Burt, 37, was charged with aggravated child abuse and booked Wednesday into the Duval County jail in lieu of $250,000 bail.

Officers were notified of a possible child abuse case April 25 after the child was taken to Wolfson Children's Hospital, according to an arrest report. The boy had two broken ribs, a fractured collarbone, bruising on his chin and a cut near his right eye.

During an interview with police, Burt could not explain how the fractures happened, according to the report. She chalked up the bruises to him resting on a pacifier, the report said, and the cut to a mishap that occurred while a sibling was jumping on the bed.

A medical report provided by the Child Protection Team indicated the boy's injuries were consistent with child abuse. Burt was interviewed again by police Wednesday, and she was taken into custody. What was said during that interview was blacked out from the arrest report.
