Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office told the press that two men were parked inside a car when a third man walked up to the vehicle and shot the man seated in the passenger seat. The victim has been identified as 21-year-old Anthony Blake Bannister.

The shooter ranoff and the driver hurried the victim to a nearby gas station, calling 911 while he was driving.

Lt. Jimmy Judge said, “He alleged he was scared and he wanted to get away. So he pulled into the first lit up area he saw.”

“Officers went on location at both scenes simultaneously. What we found here was a victim with life-threatening injuries, he’d been shot. He was taken to Shands (Jacksonville Medical Center) and has since died, so this is a homicide,” Judge said.

An ambulance rushed Bannister, age 20, to Shands Jacksonville hospital where he died.

Call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS if you have any information for police.  You will remain anonymous and will receive a cash reward of up to $1,000 if your tip leads to an arrest.
