Investigators with The St. John’s County Sheriff’s Office are investigating an apparent shooting, involving a death, which occurred late Saturday afternoon.

Deputies responded to an undeveloped area connected to Hickory Forrest Road, near Stratton Blvd (off State Road 16) where a shooting event occurred sometime after 4:00 p.m.. The shooting victim was subsequently self-transported by acquaintances to Baptist South Hospital in a private vehicle, where he was later pronounced deceased. The victim has been identified as Kahlil R. Cooke, B/M, 07-22-1997, of Jacksonville.

Investigators have identified several individuals who were either present at the time or may have knowledge of the events and have learned the incident appears to be isolated between individuals who were meeting in the area.

Crime Scene Technicians are currently processing two scenes, the area of Hickory Forrest Road and the vehicle which was secured at Baptist South Hospital. At this hour, detectives are continuing to identify and interview persons who may have knowledge of the incident to garner specific details into the events leading up to the shooting.

Anyone who may have any information on the incident is asked to contact detectives with The Major Crimes Unit at 824-8304 or to be eligible for a reward call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-277-8477 (TIPS). Further will be released as it becomes available.

BRRRR, WE TURTLES ARE COLD TOO!! Even though it’s not beach going weather for us, our deputies are still at the beach when we are needed. Deputy Mickey Butler is seen here with a cold water stunned Green Sea Turtle, found floating in the ICW near Vilano Beach. It was taken to Whitney Labs at Marineland for rehab.

Due to the exceptionally cold water we have recovered 10-15 sea turtles in the past few weeks. If you see one in distress to call the Sheriff’s Office or Beach Services. That goes for any boaters too! We will get them to Marineland for rehab.

IT’S COLD OUTSIDE!!! So cold, even our deputies have to take precautions before driving! Here, SGT Priester uses an ice scraper he bought 22 years ago to clean off his windshield so he can drive in!

We think it’s safe to say BRR!!!! What’s the deal Mother Nature! Winter in Florida isn’t THIS!

Okay - all jokes aside, make sure you are extra careful driving in. If you don’t have the ability to scrape off that hard frost from your windshield, run your defroster on high heat to melt it off before driving. Give yourself a little extra time and keep an eye out for any random patches of frosty stuff on the roads. SAFETY FIRST, ST JOHNS COUNTY!
