One Suspect Shot, One Still At Large In Brentwood Burglary Shootout


It’s unclear whether a Jacksonville police officer shot a burglary suspect on the Northside yesterday.

Police say a shootout began after two males, one a juvenile, broke into a home near Brentwood Elementary School. Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Director Tom Hackney says Officer Matthew Krueger began shooting when gunfire broke out near the house. The 17-year-old suspect was shot in the shoulder.

Hackney says it’s unclear who shot him because the homeowner was also shooting at the suspect.

The suspect that was shot was charged with armed burglary to an occupied residence. Hackney says the home was also broken into the day before and guns were stolen. The second suspect is still at large.
