Police investigate Green Cove Springs shooting

GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. -- A man is in police custody as an alleged suspect in the Friday afternoon shooting that left one man injured.

Aaron F. Weaver, 21, is set to be questioned in the shooting of Jeremy Johnson, 45, in the 3300 block of Citation Drive in Asbury Downs, according to Clay County Sheriff's Office Public Information Coordinator Mary Justino.

Johnson told police he was in his back yard when he was shot in the shoulder. He was treated and released from Orange Park Medical Center.

Weaver is set to be questioned by detectives after he is checked by medical personnel, Justino said. A search warrant will also be obtained for Weaver's grandmother's home, where he lives.

Earlier Friday, CCSO received reports of a man acting strange and possibly carrying a gun in Asbury Downs. It is not yet known if the man was Weaver.

The motive in the shooting is not yet clear, as CCSO records do not show history of problems between Weaver and Johnson, Justino said.
