1 dead, 3 shot in Northwest Jacksonville

Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is looking for suspects

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Police are on the hunt for whoever pulled the trigger and shot four men in Northwest Jacksonville sending three people to the hospital and killing an 18-year-old Tuesday night.

Officials said the shooting happened just before 6 p.m. on Ella Street and Kings Road.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office has not released the name of the teen killed, but family members said it was 18-year-old Anthony Ray.

Police said Ray's body was found in a ditch with three other men who were also shot, but who were transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

According to officials there was some sort of argument between the men and whoever was in the car.

Police said they did not know how many men were in the car but said they think there was more than one person.

News4Jax spoke with the father of Anthony Ray who said he and his family were devastated by what happened.

"This is outrageous for me, very outrageous. I don't know how to feel right now. It's more shocking then anything," said Roy Ray.

JSO is currently on the lookout for a car they described as a red Toyota Camry with a blue front passenger door.

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