Woman shot, killed at apartment complex on Jacksonville’s Southside

Deadly shooting reported half mile from location of deadly shooting week ago

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A woman was shot and killed on Jacksonville’s Southside on Friday afternoon, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

The shooting occurred a half mile from where a man was shot and killed a week ago.

Police were called to the Gardens of Bridgehampton apartment complex on Gate Parkway West around 4:45 p.m. When they arrived, they found a woman deceased outside one of the buildings.

“What’s going on in Jacksonville on the Southside now?” asked a neighbor. “There are kids in here all the time. It really hits close to home.”

According to Sgt. Doug Molina, there was no information about the shooter, who was at large. Anyone with information was asked to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at 904-630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.

The deadly shooting comes a week after a 25-year-old man died after being shot at the Century Deerwood Park Apartments on Gate Parkway. An arrest has not been announced in that shooting.
