Teen grazed by bullet in Jacksonville

Victim not cooperating with police

Posted: March 17, 2014 - 6:54pm

A teenager was grazed by a bullet Monday afternoon but wouldn’t tell investigators where it happened or who drove him to the hospital, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

Sgt. R.L. Brown said police were called to UF Health Jacksonville about a gunshot wound about 4:20 p.m. after a 16-year-old was dropped off. Brown said the bullet grazed the back of the teenager’s head.

The teen wouldn’t provide information about where it happened, who did it or who took him to the hospital. So police don’t have a suspect or location of where the shooting happened, Brown said.

Dave, even a public defender

Dave, even a public defender could probably beat that charge. He probably has a legal right not to snitch. Too bad the hospital doesn't have the right to refuse treatment until he does. It would suit me to let him bleed to death under those circumstances.

Throw him in jail until he

Throw him in jail until he talks. The charge would be hindering prosecution of a felony criminal act.
I saw that on Law and Order.
