A memorial has been placed where Jared Bridegan, a father of four, was gunned down in a Jacksonville Beach neighborhood.

A day after police released the name of a 33-year-old father gunned down in front of his 2-year-old daughter and announced an increased reward for information leading to an arrest in his death, investigators flooded the Jacksonville Beach neighborhood where he was killed.

It’s been a week since Jared Bridegan, of St. Johns County, was shot on Sanctuary Boulevard near J. Turner Butler Boulevard at the front of a quiet family neighborhood called Lake Sanctuary.

Bridegan’s 2-year-old daughter was in the SUV, which was also struck by gunfire, but she wasn’t hurt. The father of four was fatally wounded. A memorial cross with the words “Justice 4 Jared” has been placed at the scene of the shooting.
