JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Police sent information out again Wednesday as they continue searching for a man wanted in connection with the murder of a 20-year-old Jacksonville man in July.

Julian Williams, 36, is considered armed and dangerous, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said.

Police told News4Jax that Williams has been spotted around a Jacksonville neighborhood, and that's why they have released information again, asking for anyone who knows where he is to call police.

Williams is being sought in connection with a shooting reported July 23 on Blanding Boulevard that left one man dead and another wounded, police said.

Detectives said Christopher Thurston, 20, and another man were arguing about 8 p.m. July 23 near a Mobil gas station at Duclay Road and Blanding Boulevard when the second man pulled a gun and fired a shot at Thurston. Homicide detectives said a third man might have been hit by a stray bullet. Thurston died at Orange Park Medical Center.

Williams has an active warrant for murder, aggravated battery and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Anyone with any information on Williams' location is asked to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-630-0500 or email JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. To remain anonymous and receive a possible reward up to $3,000, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
