JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Surveillance video taken from the Ring app appears to show two suspects believed to be behind a fatal shooting and a home invasion in the Arlington area Wednesday.

Video submitted by a neighbor shows two individuals hopping a fence after the home invasion in the 10000 block of Townsend Boulevard. 

The incident began at 11 a.m. when an off-duty police officer saw a man fire multiple shots at another man in the parking lot of a shopping plaza in the 7100 block of Merrill Road, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

The victim, a man in his 20s, was pronounced dead at the scene. A chase ensued between the off-duty officer and the suspect, who got into a reported stolen gray vehicle, police said. The pursuit resulted in a crash and two suspects, described as men in their 20s, fled the area. 

Shortly after the crash, a home invasion occurred in the 10000 block of Townsend Boulevard where police said the suspects held a homeowner hostage to change clothes. The suspects then took off in an orange or red Dodge Charger or Challenger. The homeowner is OK, according to police.
