24-year-old Aaron Antwan Harris was shot and killed during an early morning home invasion attempt.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Two people are dead after what the Jacksonville Sheriff Office is calling a home invasion in the Fort Caroline area.
JSO says it all started around 11:20 p.m. Wednesday when they got a report of shots fired at a home in the 2000 block of Oak Water Drive.
Officers found that a group of suspects had tried to break into the home.
"They barged in guns pointed at us screaming get on the ground, where is your money, where is your money. And the next thing I know boom, boom, boom, boom," said "Big John" who lives in the home and did not want to be identified.
One of the people inside the home fired shots, hitting at least one of the intruders, 24-year-old Aaron Antwan Harris.
Harris was taken to UF Health Jacksonville, where he later died.
A tense minute or two is how "Percy" described what unfolded inside the home where six men were watching a movie.
"Then I heard bullets. I don't know who is firing and then it is silent to scared to look up, but I do. I see my friends looking up as well and I see a man face down," said Percy who was visiting friends.
Police are still looking for the other suspects in the case, which is related to a body found behind a dumpster at the Monument Road Animal Hospital.
According to Lauri-Ellen Smith with JSO, it was determined that the deceased person, who has not yet been identified pending family notification, was also a suspect in the home invasion.
