JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Homicide detectives say a woman in her early 20's was shot in the driveway of her own home early Friday morning. That woman died at the hospital, according to police.

Police said the victims sister, who lives in the same home, heard screams then found her sister unresponsive at the front of their property.

Police said the young victim was returning home from a night out with friends shortly before the incident.

The victim has been identified as 22-year-old Amber Bass.

Neighbors were woken up by the gunshots. "I heard one loud shot it sounded like it was in my back yard," said neighbor Karen Gamble.

Police urge neighbors to remain on guard and report suspicious activity.

Detectives do not have a suspect description but they are gathering information at the scene.

Nativejax,I don't know why the people she was with would wait until they were in front of her house to kill her? If it was a jealous female I would have to guess it would be her sister!!! Not so quick to prayers to the family!!

Drinking out on the town is not safe anymore...but this sounds like a jealous female that wanted her out of the way, someone she knew and trusted. I cannot imagine what her family is feeling atm, but if this beautiful girl had been my daughter, I would not rest until the person/people who did this, was 6 feet under. My Prayers to this family also.

Seems that you have to watch the video to find out…Springtree Rd. …I believe it's the Fouraker Rd. area.
