Jacksonville, FLA – Saturday morning around 6 a.m., police found a man lying in a yard off Buttercup Street with at least one gunshot wound to his stomach.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said the man was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injures.

At this time, the victim is not cooperating and according to JSO Lt. Michael Senterfitt, this is normal following a shooting.

“It’s just one of those things building the trust for the community and trying to get people to talk to with us," Senterfitt said. "The reality is the detectives will try to talk with the people involved later but right now we just don’t have anything.”

No suspects have been identified at this time.

If you have any information regarding Saturday’s shooting, you are encouraged to call the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at (904) 630-0500 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 866-845-TIPS.
