A man being followed by two others was shot in a home in Northwest Jacksonville on Monday afternoon, the victim's brother said.

He said his brother showed up at his house in the 5300 block of Foxboro Road saying he was being followed and went inside.

A few minutes later, someone yelled his brother's name and threw open the door, firing one shot that hit him in the stomach.

The brother fired shots to chase the gunman out.

The victim was taken to Shands Jacksonville Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police were looking for two suspects.
