JSO searching for two masked men in Southside shooting

Grandmother's home shot up

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Two masked men fired a dozen shots into a home on Grampian Drive North on Tuesday.

A grandmother and her grandchildren were home at the time of the shooting. No one was hurt.

A neighbor told Action News Jax a small gray car — possibly a Honda — drove up onto the curb and the occupant began firing bullets into the home and at the white car in the driveway. A young man was inside the white car at the time. A witness said he fired back in self-defense.

This happened around 12 p.m. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office secured the scene and laid out 13 evidence markers next to several shell casings.

Shawn Gorman, who lives down the street, said typically everyone keeps to themselves on this side of town, and she does not believe the people who live inside the home knew the shooter.


"Hopefully they catch whoever did this," Gorman said. "This happened in broad daylight. That never happens."

Action News Jax did some digging and found that this is typically a low crime area. In the last month, there have been 11 crimes. Seven were related to car break-ins, but there were no violent crimes.

Again, no one was hurt.
