JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A person who had been shot was found early Sunday morning at a gas station on Edgewood Avenue North, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said.

Officers said they responded around 4:25 a.m. to a reported shooting at the Texaco gas station on Edgewood Avenue North.

Responding officers found a single victim suffering from a gunshot wound at that location. That individual was transported to an area hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Primary investigation led police to believe that the victim was shot at a separate location before driving his truck to the gas station, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

As of now, JSO has no suspect information. The Violent Crimes Unit is investigating.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call JSO at 904-630-0500 or email JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. To remain anonymous, contact First Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS (8477).
