GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. -- One man is recovering and another man is behind bars after a shooting in Lake Asbury today.

Just before 3 p.m. Friday, the Clay County Sheriff's Office sent deputies to the 3300 block of Citation Drive in the Asbury Downs subdivision to investigate a shooting. Deputies arrested 21-year-old Aaron F. Weaver of Citation Drive.

The victim Jeremy Johnson, 45, of Citation Drive had a minor gun-shot wound to his shoulder.

Johnson told deputies that he was outside his home in his back yard when he was shot. It is unclear where Weaver was at the time of the shooting. Johnson was taken to OPMC where he was treated and released. No other injuries were reported.

CCSO says a motive for the shooting is not clear. Earlier today, the CCSO received information regarding a man acting strange in the Asbury Downs neighborhood and possibly carrying a gun. Deputies searched but did not find anyone. Detectives don't know yet if Weaver was this person.

The investigation is ongoing.
