A man died after being shot at the Springfield home in Jacksonville


Jacksonville Police are investigating the shooting death of a man at the Springfield home.

The victim died at the scene of the accident from a gunshot wound at approximately 10:30 pm. In the 200 block of West Seventh Street, Sgt. Adam Blaine told reporters.

“At this point, we don’t know if the shooting was deliberate or accidental,” Blaine said.

Noting that the investigation was early, Blaine said it appeared three people were in a house when one of them took out a gun. At some point, he said, the gun fired and the bullet hit the victim.

Investigators were questioning witnesses and searching the area for video and surveillance cameras.

“We believe this is an isolated incident and that all of the people involved are in custody and there is no threat to society,” Blaine said.
