4 arrested in Southside shooting death
Police: Suspects tried to rob 36-year-old
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Four people have been arrested in connection with the shooting death of a 36-year-old man at the Park View Place Apartments in Sans Souci last week.
Jarquavis Davis, Roteia Hutchison, Eltonia Humphries and Josh Dukes are all charged with murder in the killing of Wesley Bridges.
Bridges was found shot Aug. 6 at the complex in the 6200 block of Barnes Road. He later died at a hospital.
Police said Bridges and another man were sitting outside the apartments waiting for a ride when they were approached by three men. According to police, some conversation ensued between the men and then shots were fired.
Investigators said they found a wallet containing the Florida Identification and Social Security cards belonging to Davis near the shooting scene. Davis was arrested Thursday on an outstanding capias and interviewed by detectives, who said he admitted to being involved in the killing but was not the shooter.
Davis further told detectives the suspects originally intended to commit a robbery.
Hutchison was also interviewed regarding her involvement in the case and admitted that she drove three people to the complex and that one of them was armed with a rifle, police said. She also told detectives that she heard three shots fired before picking up the three people and drove away from the scene, according to police.
Investigators said they believe Dukes and Humphries were the shooters. They said one had a rifle and the other had a handgun.
Dukes was arrested in Marion County. He is expected to be brought back to Jacksonville next week.
Police said the suspects did not know the victim and had set out that night to rob people. Investigators said they don't know why Bridges was shot, but it may have been because he tried to run.
