JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It's a twist in a case, that no one saw coming. Police say the man who originally appeared to be the aggressor in a hit-and-run was really one of the victims.
Crime scene tape tied up downtown Jacksonville August 10th. Police say a brawl broke after a concert near the Jacksonville Landing.
"All of these individuals were probably intoxicated. They were just leaving a club," said Lt. Rob Schoonover.
22-year-old Taylor Evans was hit and killed by a pick truck he was trying to stop. Now police say the driver and his passanger where being brutally attacked as it happened.
According to the report, 26-year-old Greg Allen Johnson was the man beating the driver. "His orbital socket was shattered. He has two large gashes over his head that required stitches," said Schoonover.
Now Johnson is charged with the murder of Taylor Evans even though he wasn't driving. Police don't believe the driver even knew Evans was in front of his truck.
"The first two punches we believe split open his head, the blood was flowing. And the passenger was screaming lets get out of hear. We do not believe that he knew that individual was in front to the truck," said Schoonover.
Police say that driver could still be charged with DUI pending toxicology reports.
Police still need your help finding the man who was fighting on the passenger side of that truck. If you have any information that could help, call Duval Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
