Man shot, killed in Lackawanna neighborhood

JSO's homicide unit responded to Broadway Avenue in the Lackawanna area Sunday.

A man died Sunday afternoon after he was shot while walking in a Lackawanna neighborhood, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. 

John Dawsey died after JSO was called to the 3500 block of Broadway Avenue at 12:43 p.m. after receiving numerous reports of a shooting.

Upon arrival, they say the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department was already at the scene treating Dawsey, described as a black man in his 30s. He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, JSO says.

Deputies say there are multiple suspects and that they fled on foot from a vehicle after the shooting.

JSO has recovered the vehicle, a van, found abandoned in a ditch a block away from the shooting.

A rifle was found near the van, but JSO says they are unsure if the weapon was involved in the shooting.

When asked if neighbors are in any danger, JSO said residents should go about as normal but remain vigilant.

If you have any information on this fatal shooting, call JSO at 904-630-0500 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
