JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Police are looking for the person who shot a 25-year-old man early Friday morning during a parking lot after-party outside a Southside Jacksonville business.

Sometime after, a fight broke out and shots were fired about 3:20 a.m. in a parking lot at the corner of Philips Highway and Baymeadows Road, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

A majority of the group fled the scene, but at least one witness stayed to help police figure out what happened; however, a suspect or vehicle description couldn’t be determined.

Police said the victim was in critical condition. Police said it wasn’t clear which business the group began the party at, but that detectives were checking surveillance videos.

Police are asking anyone with information to come forward, reminding you can remain anonymous by contacting 904-630-0500 or 866-845-TIPS.
