JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A security guard has been killed on the Westside after a robbery at the High Score Arcade on Monday, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
Police say that one male and one female broke into the arcade located at 950 Edgewood Ave N around 2 a.m. in an attempt to rob it.
Upon arrival, they found a security guard suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to a hospital where he later died. His identity has not been released.
