The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is asking for help from the community to figure out who fired shots, killing an 18-year-old woman and injuring a 21-year-old man.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla — The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is asking for help from the community to figure out what led to the shooting death of an 18-year-old woman at a Westside apartment complex that also sent a 21-year-old man to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

JSO was called to 1570 Lane Ave., which is the Wickshire Apartments, around 1 a.m. Several people called 911 after they heard multiple gun shots fired, police said.

When officers arrived, they found two people shot multiple times in a vehicle. The victims were taken to UF Health Shands, where an 18-year-old woman who lived at the apartment complex was pronounced dead on arrival to the hospital.

A 21-year-old man was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

First Coast News crews on the scene saw investigators looking around and inside of a car using flashlights. The car had bullet holes in the doors and evidence markers underneath it.

Police do not know the identity of the gunman. They say the car did not belong to either of the victims.

Police said they believe the shooting was an isolated incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call JSO at 904-630-0500.
