Home Intruder Shot - Sounds a Little Fishy
The guys story just seems a little fishy, but the PD released him (so far). Hopefully everything will work out ok for the victim.
JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Police are investigating a shooting on the Southside that left one man dead.
Jacksonville Sheriff's Officers say the shooting happened at a home on Ivey Road Sunday night.
Authorities say Gary Gene Wright, 25, called 911 and told them he'd shot someone.
Wright told police he believed the man tried to break into his house.
Police found 21-year-old Cordero Duran Jones dead at the scene.
Detectives say there's no sign of forced entry.
Investigators interviewed and released Wright Sunday night. They also questioned his girlfriend, who lives with him.
Wright told First Coast News that he knew the man he shot but he wouldn't elaborate on their relationship.
In a prior police report filed Thursday, Wright told police that someone broke into his home and stole several pistols and a plasma television.
Richard Polke lives a few doors away from Wright. He said that police have been at Wright's home several times and this latest incident makes him feel unsafe.
"It is kind of frightening to see that happen. It surprised me. It took me by surprise," Polke said.
