Seventeen-year-old Tyon Blair was shot and killed in the Sandalwood area Wednesday, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
JSO said it got a call about a person shot near Kusaie Drive and Mareeba Road.
When police arrived, they found the Blair dead. Police said they believe he was using a path around a home as a cut through around a retention pond.
Family members of Blair, as well as witnesses, were at the scene.
At this time, JSO is treating his death as suspicious until a medical examiner has time to investigate.
