The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is investigating a double shooting that happened just after midnight Sunday morning at the Roosevelt Gardens Apartment complex in the Hogan's Creek section of the city. Police say one person was shot in the lower body and the second person was grazed by a bullet.

Both people were transported to UF Health with non-life-threatening injuries. Police have not released the names of the victims at this time. They have not provided any suspect descriptions. Police say several items of evidence were collected.
