Man dies after drive-by shooting

Police asking for public's help to find those responsible


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says a man has died after a drive-by shooting that took place Saturday.

JSO responded to a shots fired call around 4:30 p.m. Saturday and found a man in critical condition suffering from gunshot wounds in the front yard of the house on West 17th Street.

People reported hearing multiple gunshots, but no one said they actually saw the shooting, as far as police know.

The man was rushed to Shands Medical Center where he died from his injuries.

Channel 4 spoke to the father of the victim, who said his son's name is Anthony Stinson Jr.

In an exclusive interview, the father said his son was a mild mannered young man.

He said at the time of the shooting Stinson was visiting his grandmother's home.

Stinson would have turned 21 next month.

"It's just a terrible terrible feeling to lose your child. That's my baby boy. Would have been 21 years old on June 16. I just know that God is good and he will comfort us but at this time, it's tough," Anthony Stinson Sr. said.

Officials are now looking for a gray sedan which may have been involved.

Police asking for the public's help in catching whoever is responsible.
