A 23-year-old Jacksonville man has been arrested in connection with a November killing in Northwest Jacksonville.

Antonio Joiner is charged with murder in the shooting death of 32-year-old Javan Reaves in the 1900 block of West 25th Street.

Police said the two had an ongoing dispute, and the final straw was when Reaves parked behind Joiner at an apartment complex, hemming him in.

Joiner pulled a gun on Reaves, police said. They said there was a struggle for it and it fell to the floor.

Joiner picked it up and shot Reaves in the chest, police said.
