Police are trying to identify a man they believe is responsible for shooting and killing a woman in a northeast Jacksonville home.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office responded to the home at East 56th Street between Evergreen and Buffalo Avenues at 12:35 a.m. Saturday.

Investigators said an unknown man entered the house and shot and killed 55-year-old Kelly Eberhardt.

Eberhardt's boyfriend, who did not want to be identified, spoke to Channel 4 Saturday. He said he believes she may have been targeted.

"He said 'do you know who I am?' and she said 'no,' then he shot her. I sure miss her. I been up all night. I hope they turn him in. Or kill him. I can't stay here very long," he said.

Police said the motive is unknown at this time.

If you have any information you are asked to call the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-630-0500 or Crimestoppers at 866-845-TIPS.
