Police To Decide on Charges in Murray Hill Shooting

Police are still trying to determine if a Jacksonville man should be charged with murder following a shooting in Murray Hill Sunday night. It happened in the 3600 block of Dellwood Avenue.

A man, who police say was terrorizing his girlfriend, was shot and killed on the porch of a house. It all started Sunday afternoon after a man and woman, believed to be boyfriend and girlfriend, got into an argument.

The woman filed a domestic violence-related report against the man but he continued threatening her. He showed up at the home on Dellwood Avenue. Police say the homeowner came outside on the porch and shot the man.

“Basically, now we’re just interviewing the witness and the person who did the shooting. The state attorney is on the scene and we’re going to determine if this was a justifiable homicide at this point,” said Sgt. Derrick Lewis, Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

At this time, police believe the homeowner was acting in self defense. They have not made any arrests and have not said if any charges will be filed.
