JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A 62-year-old man was shot twice late Sunday evening in the parking lot of the Walmart Neighborhood Market on San Pablo Road, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said.

Police said the 62-year-old was sitting in his car in the parking lot about 11:30 p.m. when two men, one of whom had a gun, approached him and the man with a gun ordered him out of the vehicle.

When the man asked why, he was shot twice, according to the police report.

The victim ran into the Walmart for help, and was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

The two men took off in a black SUV, police said.

"We’re currently looking for them," JSO Sgt. Litt said. "We have very limited information on the suspects at this point. We only have two individuals identified."
