JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Jacksonville police are looking for three men in connection with a robbery and shooting last month.

Police were called to the 1400 block of North Market Street on the Eastside just after 6 p.m. July 22.

Police said the victim was confronted about money by three men, one of whom pulled a gun on him and told him to "give it up."

The man with the gun then pulled the trigger twice, and the gun clicked twice, police said. The man pointed the gun in the air and shot a round into the air, police said.

The man fled, and the victim went into a store, police said. They said the victim waited about 10 minutes and started walking home.

The victim was confronted by the same three men, one of whom said, "Give it up," police said.

The victim refused and started walking away, police said, and one of the men then shot him in the back with a black revolver.
