One injured in shooting Wednesday night

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is investigating a person shot in the 800 block of Laurel Street Wednesday evening.

According to JSO Will Janes, officers responded to reports of shots fired around 9 p.m. A second group of officers was flagged down shortly after the call by the victim outside of UF Health.

The unidentified victim received minor injuries when his leg was grazed in by a bullet, Janes said.

Janes says the incident does not appear to be a drive-by shooting at this time.

The Violent Crimes Task Force is investigating the ongoing case.
