Jacksonville, Fl. – The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is asking people for information about a violent altercation that left one man stabbed and another shot in the Arlington neighborhood of Jacksonville Thursday night for coming forward.

A sheriff’s office spokesman said a group of people were outside a residence near Free Avenue and Lamson Street before the violence began at 8:15. The spokesperson did not say what caused the escalation, but it is not clear whether investigators are aware.

He said a male victim was taken to the hospital in a life-threatening condition with at least one gunshot wound. Another man, who police did not describe as a victim, was also taken to hospital for multiple wounds but is expected to make a full recovery.
