Police fatally shoot man during standoff in Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE — Police fatally shot man following a 90-minute standoff at a Jacksonville mobile home park.

Authorities say the man came running out of a home at the Countryside Villages mobile home park Tuesday night.

The Florida Times-Union reports the man started firing a weapon as he ran, hollering hysterically. Officers opened fire on him and he fell to the ground.

Before the man ran out of the house, officers had been talking to him on a loud speaker, trying to get him to surrender.

The man's name hasn't been released. Neighbors told the newspaper a man and his stepfather live in the mobile home.

No further details were immediately available.
