Jacksonville, Fla. – The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of a suspect Sunday, a day after a man was shot to death in the Moncrief neighborhood.
Brian Jordan, 20, has been arrested for allegedly killing the victim in a Saturday night shooting.
When police arrived on Golfbrook Drive around 7:30 p.m., they said they found a man in his late teens or early 20s with a gunshot wound. He was taken to hospital in critical condition but later died.
JSO has not released the identity of the victim.
According to witnesses, there was an apparent argument before the shooting, JSO said.
Detectives from the Homicide and Crime Scene Unit interviewed witnesses and investigated the situation.
The JSO said assistance from the community helped identify Jordan as the suspect.
“Following a thorough investigation, evaluation of available evidence, and examination of information received from our community, detectives were able to identify a suspect in this case, which led to the suspect’s quick arrest,” JSO said.
AJ Jordan with Mad Dads said other communities should learn from this situation because it’s unusual for someone to be arrested so quickly for a crime.
“We don’t usually do that, but the community is tired of these criminals taking over our city and they’re starting to speak up,” Jordan said. “When the community steps up and JSO comes in, asks questions, and they’re willing to talk, we get quick results like today.”
Jordan said he has received a lot of tips sent to the Mad Dads organization.
This marks 108 homicides in Jacksonville this year. A total of 109 murders took place in the city in 2021.
