The red car being sought by police in the killing of a 21-year-old man at a BP gas station Monday night has been recovered, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
Nicholas Stoner (pictured at bottom of story), 21, has been charged with murder and accessory after the fact in connection with the shooting death of Nedzad Botonjic.
Sources say police are still trying to identify the shooter, who is believed to be from the Orlando area.
Joe Stoner, Nicholas Stoner's brother, said the man who shot Botonjic hangs out with his brother and is "not a good person." Joe Stoner said the shooter knew Botonjic, but he doesn't think his brother did.
Botonjic was shot several times and killed about 6:30 p.m. Monday at the gas station on Atlantic Boulevard near Monument Road in Regency.
Investigators released a surveillance photo from the gas station of the man wanted in the shooting. Police said Nedzad was shot several times.
Witnesses told police two men had an altercation outside the store in the parking lot with Nedzad, then two men sped off down Live Oak Drive after the shooting in a small red four-door vehicle (pictured below in surveillance photo). The vehicle has since been found.
Anyone who has any information about the identity of the shooter is asked to call the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-630-0500 or email JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. To remain anonymous and receive a possible reward up to $3,000, call Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS.
