JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A 19-year-old was taken into custody Wednesday night after authorities said he opened fire on FBI agents and Jacksonville Sheriff's Office investigators during an operation in Grand Park.

Cleveland Rolack Jr. was charged with three counts of assault on a law enforcement officer and possession of a firearm by a convicted juvenile delinquent.

His bond was set at $412,000. He will be back in court Jan. 3.

Amanda Videll with the FBI told News4Jax that federal investigators were assisting with a planned multi-agency operation when Rolack opened fire. It's unclear exactly what the investigation was for or what led to the shooting.

The scene was near the intersection of West 13th Street and Connally Avenue.

Rolack was arrested on an attempted murder charge in 2016 and pleaded guilty to aggravated assault. He was sentenced to probation, which he's still serving.
