Officers arrested a 19-year-old man for murder after a triple shooting in Jacksonville.
Deontrae Thomas was arrested Sunday after the triple shooting on Raw Hyde Trail.
One man was killed and two young people were injured, police said.
Action News Jax spoke to a 16-year-old victim in the shooting. She said her older brother was killed and her 9-year-old cousin was hurt.
The 9-year-old girl is recovering after she was shot five times. One of the bullets hit her neck.
“He kept shooting until he couldn’t no more,” Stanteria Brown, who was hit twice, said. “I got shot in my leg. There’s a bullet still in here."
Brown and four others, all 18 and younger, were asleep in the home when they were awakened by a loud noise.
“He threw a brick into our sliding door. That’s what woke me up,” Brown said.
Brown said everyone quickly dropped to the ground.
Zion Brown, 18, died at the hospital.
“He was begging God to not let him die,” Stanteria Brown said.
The shooting on Raw Hyde Trail was one of eight shootings since Friday.
Twelve people were shot and four people were killed.
