JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A teenage boy was shot Friday afternoon outside a home near the Tallyrand neighborhood, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said.

Officers responded about 1:40 p.m. on Bridier Street, just north of Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway. 

Police said they found a 16-year-old boy, who had been shot, in the street. The teen was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

Police originally said they were looking for a white Nissan Altima, but as the investigation progressed, they said they were no longer searching for the vehicle. 

Detectives said they believe the shooting was an isolated incident. They later added that they do not believe there was "criminal intent involved with this shooting."

The Sheriff's Office continues to investigate. 

This was one of three shootings reported Friday in Jacksonville. Police said two men were shot in an exchange of gunfire just before noon in the Durkeeville neighborhood, and a man was shot and killed about 1 p.m. on the city's Southside
