Updated information in reference to the homicide case from July 5, 2013
Case #201300125483
On July 5, 2013, at 9:32 PM, the Ocala Police Department received a call of shots being fired in the 1900 block of SW 3rd Street in Ocala. Responding Officers arrived and found B/M Julius Jerome Jacobs, 40 years of age, on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound. Mr. Jacobs was pronounced deceased at the scene by responding EMS personnel. Information received from witnesses at the scene indicated that Mr. Jacobs was involved in some type of altercation with 3 B/M's just prior to being shot.
Detectives responded out to work this incident. As of today’s date, July 8, 2013, Sgt. Brian Young of the Major Crimes Section advised that all known subjects involved in the incident have been interviewed by detectives working the case. However, if there are any witnesses out there that have not yet been located and interviewed, they are encouraged to come forward and give their statements.
Additionally, in the course of the investigation, a firearm – 9mm semi-automatic handgun – was located. Forensic testing will still need to be done to determine if this was the actual gun used to shoot and kill Jacobs.
Detectives have been diligently working on compiling all the facts and evidence in this case and will be presenting all of their findings to the State Attorney’s Office as soon as possible.
At this point in time, there is no further information available for dissemination.
