Woman, 28, found shot at NW Jacksonville food store


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A 28-year-old Jacksonville woman was found shot outside a Northwest Jacksonville food store Monday evening.

Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Lt. Ellis Burns said police received a call about 7 p.m. that a person had been shot at 2610 Myrtle Ave. When officers responded, they found Kimberly Blair in the parking lot of Blue Star Discount Food Store with a gunshot wound to the upper chest.

Blair was taken to UF Health Jacksonville with non-life-threatening injuries. She was not able to tell police anything about what happened.

Officers looked at surveillance video from the store, and it showed two young men coming in and one of them pointing and shooting a handgun inside the store. Both men then fled on foot.

Burns said investigators found multiple shell casings in the area. He said police have a person of interest who might have been a witness, but no one has been taken into custody for the shooting.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS.
