Police in Jacksonville have arrested an 18-year-old on a charge of attempted murder in the shooting of another man after a Raines High School football game last month.

Investigators said Bruce Jackson shot 20-year-old Anthony Ceaser several times in the 6000 block of Raines Vikings Way in Northwest Jacksonville on Sept. 7.

Ceaser is still in a hospital in serious condition.

Police said a fight broke out near the parking lot after the game, and as police tried to get through the crowd to stop it, shots rang out.

Witnesses said the fight started when someone threw a soda.
