JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Sections of The Enclave were evacuated Friday after JSO and SWAT responded to the sound of gunfire at one of the apartments.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said neighbors in the gated apartment complex heard a gunshot and called police.

The suspect, according to neighbors, came outside and acted strangely.

When police arrived, the suspect locked himself inside his apartment.

When he refused to come out, SWAT responded and evacuated a section of the apartment as a precaution.

JSO does not believe anyone else is inside the apartment with the suspect.

Neighbors say this behavior is unusual for the suspect and that he seemed to be drunk.
