    Four people were hurt in a shooting in Jacksonville Friday night.

    A Jacksonville Sheriff's Office spokesperson said one man was in critical condition and three others had serious injuries after the shooting in the 6100 block of Transylvania Ave. 

    Witnesses told Action News Jax reporter Danielle Avitable they heard 12 to 15 gunshots just before 9 p.m.

    A dark-colored vehicle was seen fleeing the area, according to police. 

    JSO said officers it was unknown if the shooting was related to the death of 17-year-old Dontavious Joseph, whose family lives on Transylvania Avenue.

    Joseph died after a stolen car he was riding in hit a fence and flipped as JSO pursued it.

    Joseph was ejected from the car and three other people were trapped inside, officers said.

    JSO is asking anyone with information about the shooting on Transylvania Avenue to call JSO at 904-630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-Tips.
