Police arrested Sheffield after two women who were in the car were hit by gunfire. A family member of a victim, who asked not to be identified, said she's concerned and that her loved one is still recovering from her injuries.

“I just want JSO to do their job and get to the bottom of it. Just don’t let it go," the family member said. "We need to find out who did this.”

The family member said this is the second time the woman has been a victim of a shooting. A police report shows that, in 2017, the woman helped police make an arrest by identifying Deontrae Thomas as the man who shot her and fatally wounded 18-year-old Zion Brown. On Thursday, the State Attorney's Office announced Thomas was indicted for first-degree murder and witness tampering in the Brown case.

Investigators said Sheffield's attempted murder charges are pending. Sources told News4Jax his family will not be making any statements at this time while the investigation is ongoing.
