JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Police are searching for two persons of interest who witnesses say took off in a red, four-door car in connection with a shooting Monday night in Arlington.

Early Tuesday afternoon, police said they believe at least one possible suspect shown on surveillance video may be from the Orlando area.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office was called to the BP gas station at Atlantic Boulevard and Live Oak Drive, near the Regency Square Mall, where shots were fired Monday around 6:30 p.m.

Witnesses told police that some sort of altercation took place outside of the BP between the victim and the subjects, who took off in a red-four door, possibly a Toyota Corolla, with a temporary tag and a spoiler.
 
People tried to follow the vehicle, which fled down Live Oak, police said.

The victim, who arrived in a car, has been identified as 21-year-old Nedzad Botonjic.  His funeral is set for Wednesday afternoon at the Islamic Center of NE Florida on St. Johns Bluff Road.  It begins at 1 p.m.

JSO is collecting surveillance video from the gas station and other nearby businesses, as well.

Anyone who has any information in regards to the location of this vehicle or the identity of the unknown suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 866-845TIPS. You will remain anonymous and receive a possible cash reward of up to $3,000.
