JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- One suspect is in custody and one suspect is at large after the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office SWAT team was called to a home early Friday morning.
Shawn Curtis Robinson, 23, was arrested on a county warrant for felony suspended
license, according to JSO Public Information Officer Shannon Hartley.
Deshawn Lamar Brown, 27, is still at large and wanted on a charge of aggravated domestic battery.
The situation began around 7:30 p.m. Thursday when JSO was trying to serve a warrant to Brown in the 2600 block of Gilmore Street, Hartley said.
The SWAT team was called to the home around 2 a.m., Hartley said. Robinson was also in the home and gave himself up early.
Three pops were heard by media at the scene and this was most likely the sound of tear gas canisters, which were fired into the residence at 5 a.m., Hartley said.
Central Riverside Elementary School was originally set to be closed, but it will now be open, Hartley said.
Duval County Public Schools spokesperson Wendy Lehockey released this statement on the decision to keep school open:
"The district was advised by JSO that there was a potentially violent situation in a resident home near Central Riverside Elementary. In order to ensure the safety of students, District staff were working on contingency plans to communicate with parents regarding the possible relocation of students if the situation were not resolved prior to the opening of school.
"DCPS and JSO have indicated that the scene is clear and there are no suspects in the neighborhood. We plan to open school as usual and will have district and cluster staff on site to assist if needed."
Anyone with any information about the location of Brown is asked to contact JSO at 904-630-0500 or email JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. To remain anonymous and receive a possible reward, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
