JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A 19-year-old man accused of attacking police with knives died Sunday after being shot by two JSO officers, authorities said.
Cody Marsh, 19, who was shot by JSO officers Saturday, was pronounced dead on Sunday, 10 p.m.
An officer involved shooting occurred in Downtown from earlier Saturday morning. JSO reported earlier that they responded to a call at Market St. and Union St. when a man rushed at them with knives, which is when officers shot at him. He was taken to UF Health in critical condition.
Cody N. Marsh, 19, had reportedly been using drugs leading a family member to drop him off at a shelter for the night. Marsh ended up at the McDonald's at Market St. and Union St. where he called the authorities saying he had been mugged. During the phone call he became verbally abusive to the dispatcher and changed his story several times.
Another call came in from the McDonald's manager who said "someone is going to get hurt tonight," according to JSO, about Marsh banging on the glass doors of the restaurant with knives in his hands.
When JSO got on scene they set up a perimeter around Marsh, giving him time to surrender. Marsh charged at Officer White, a seven-year veteran of the force, who discharged his gun at that time. Another officer shot at Marsh three times. There is not yet a report about how many times Marsh was hit, but he was hit in the arm and head, according to JSO.
He was taken to UF Health where he is still in life-threatening condition.
Marsh's Facebook shows, 13 hours ago, what appears to be a suicide note, saying goodbye to loved ones and an angry note for his parents. A neighbor confirmed that the man on the Facebook page was indeed him.
Both officers are on paid administrative leave as the shooting goes under investigation.
