Double shooting leaves two men injured

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Two men are recovering after a double shooting early Monday morning on the city's northwest side.

It happened around 1:00 a.m. in the 2600 block of W. 26th Street.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office responded and found the victims in separate locations with gunshot wounds.

The victims' identities have not been released at this time. They are believed to be 28 and 21 years old.

They were transported to the UF Health at Jacksonville with injuries that are believed to be non-life threatening.

One possible suspect was seen running away from the area where the victims were found, but so far no arrests have been made.

Officers remained on scene for multiple hours gathering evidence and attempting to make contact with someone inside a home who they said might know something about the shootings.

Reporters were warned about possibly hearing air horns as negotiations with that person continued. Lt. Ellis Burns said it was possible that the situation would require a SWAT team.

It's believed a dispute led to the gunfire, but Burns wasn't sure what caused the dispute.

The relationship between the two men and the suspect is unknown at this time. Burns could not say if the victims lived in the area.
