JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is investigating a fatal shooting in which police say one friend shot another in the 10100 block of Arrowhead Drive in Mandarin.

The two men went out on Friday night and had a good time, according to JSO Sgt. Shawn Coursey.

They got back to the victim's apartment and got into an altercation. Coursey did not say what the altercation was about.

The altercation was initially reported as a fight, but escalated to shots fired.

When police arrived, the victim was bleeding in the parking lot and the man suspected in the shooting was being held down by his brother.

The suspect is now in police custody.

Several witnesses were taken downtown for questioning, Coursey said. The victim's girlfriend and baby were also at the scene.

The victim has not been identified.
