Fatal Shooting Incident in San Marco Women Killed Inside SUV

Fatal Shooting Incident in San Marco: Women Killed Inside SUV

In the early morning, two women were fatally shot and killed while inside a sport-utility vehicle stopped at a railroad crossing on Hendricks Avenue. The incident occurred in the San Marco area of Jacksonville. Subsequently, the SUV collided with a passing train. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office reported that the police received a call about the crash around 1:30 a.m. on a Wednesday.

Upon arriving at the scene, authorities discovered a 28-year-old woman, who had been shot multiple times, inside the SUV. Additionally, a 53-year-old woman was found just outside the vehicle, also suffering from gunshot wounds.

Tragically, the woman inside the vehicle, who was the driver, was pronounced dead at the scene. The second woman was taken to a hospital, but she also succumbed to her injuries. The circumstances surrounding the shooting remained unclear, including whether the shots were fired from another vehicle, the victims’ own vehicle, or a person on foot. The motive behind the shooting – whether it was a targeted incident, a case of road rage, or something else – was also uncertain.

The SUV seemingly rolled forward and collided with the passing train subsequent to the shooting. Detectives discovered several shell casings at the scene, prompting further investigation. To gather more information and potential leads, law enforcement plans to review security footage from nearby businesses. They are urging anyone with relevant information to come forward.

Individuals who possess information regarding the case can reach out to the Sheriff’s Office directly at (904) 630-0500. Alternatively, they can contact First Coast Crime Stoppers at (866) 845-8477 (845-TIPS) to provide anonymous tips and become eligible for rewards.

The unfortunate incident adds to Jacksonville’s homicide count for the year, which has reached 85 at present. By comparison, at the same time in the previous year (2022), there had been 97 homicides, and the year ended with a total of 165 homicides, as per records from the Times-Union.
