JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said six people were detained and are being questioned after a shooting on Jacksonville’s Westside turned into a 20-mile police chase that ended with officers using a PIT maneuver on another vehicle.
According to Lieutenant Mark Musser with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, a shooting took place between two cars around 3:30 a.m. on 103rd Street. One person was shot, resulting in the car crashing. The person suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital. Another person from that car was detained.
The other car involved — a white Kia Forte — drove off and led police on a 10-minute chase to Golfair Boulevard and I-95. JSO used a PIT maneuver to stop the car. When the car stopped, four people in the car jumped out and ran.
One officer used their cruiser to hit one of the people and got them to stop. The individual was taken to a hospital to be treated for minor injuries and was released. Police also managed to catch the other three people.
All six people — five men and one woman — were detained and are being questioned. No one was arrested as JSO sorts out possible criminal charges, officials said.
All lanes of Golfair Boulevard east of the interstate have reopened.
