JSO: Six people detained after shootout between two vehicles, police pursuit

JSO says around 3:30 a.m., patrol officers witnessed a shooting that took place between 2 vehicles in the 10000 block on 103rd Street on the city's Westside.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Five men and one woman have been detained, including one person who remains hospitalized following a shootout between two vehicles and a short police pursuit in Jacksonville Thursday morning, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

A JSO Lieutenant says at approximately 3:30 a.m., patrol officers witnessed the shooting that took place between a white sedan and a dark-colored sports car in the 10000 block on 103rd Street on Jacksonville's Westside. Police say the sports car crashed at the scene and that one person inside the vehicle, was shot and is in non-life-threatening condition while the other person inside the vehicle, was detained at the scene.

The sedan fled the scene in which "officers initiated a vehicle pursuit" that lasted approximately 10 minutes and ended at the intersection of Golfair Boulevard and North Davis Street, police say. The pursuit was led through 103rd Street, State Road 23, Interstate 10, Hammond Boulevard, Crystal Springs Road, Chaffee Road, Normandy Boulevard, State Road 23, I-10, Interstate 95 north and finally ended at Golfair, according to the incident report. Four occupants of the sedan fled on foot after officers used a "precision immobilization technique" to stop the vehicle, according to police. The incident report states that the sedan also crashed into a wood fence at a 76 gas station in which caused $300 in damages as it was traveling "at speeds up to 130 mph."

JSO says during the pursuit of one of the individuals that fled, one officer intentionally used their vehicle to "strike one of the suspects from the car." Police say the unidentified man was detained and taken to a local hospital. He has since been released from the hospital as he suffered minor injuries in the incident, JSO told First Coast News in a briefing held at 9:45 a.m. on Thursday.

Police say that no officers were injured in the incident.

JSO says they are currently interviewing "all parties involved" as police are determining what charges are to come from an ongoing, active investigation on the incident.
