Twenty teenagers have been shot so far this year in Jacksonville, according to News4Jax records.

On Thursday, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office listed Tuesday’s deadly shooting of a 16-year-old boy at Woodstock Park on West Beaver Street as a murder.

“I hate to see things like this,” said David Cail, who’s lived on the Westside for 30 years.

He said it hurts learning a teen was killed steps from his home.

“It’s a shame that our youth are becoming killed every day and youth-on-youth crime,” Cail said.
