A Jacksonville man walking with his brother was wounded in the shoulder Sunday after a gunman fired three rounds at the pair, police said.

The 27-year-old victim did not suffer critical injuries in the shooting just before 8 p.m. The victim's brother told police they first saw the shooter standing in the 5400 block of Spring Grove Avenue and that he ran behind them before opening fire.

The victims ran to the in the 1900 block of West 45th Street and called police, a police report said.

The victim, whose name is not being released by the Times-Union because no arrests have been reported, was released from UF Health folowing treatment.

I am so tired of people

I am so tired of people taking pop shots at others in Jacksonville. It just must stop. It's every day. Every night. Anywhere. Our society has turned to a violent one and this so disturbs me. It is not apparently confined to Jacksonville if you listen to the media. Somehow, these shooters, these rioters, (including one destroying a store in their own neighborhood in Ferguson) seem to think that breaking the law is nothing to be considered. It's all very hipp and cool.

You'd think or wish these thugs with guns would mature and get a job. But likely no education and likely, don't want to work. One day, if they live that long, they will be living off of the income (welfare or jail costs) of us working folks.

Sad reflection on our future. Wish there were a REAL LEADER in Jax who could talk and connect with these many shooters and gangs and bring the county back into a civilized place to live.
