By on December 4th, 2012

The Alachua County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the shooting of a man on Monday evening in northern Gainesville near Monteocha.

William Redd, 44, was shot in the chest at his residence, 2010 NE 192nd Ave. Redd was taken to Shands at the University of Florida, but he died a short time later.

Todd Kelly, the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson, said deputies are re-interviewing witnesses and developing leads.

“You’ve got to do the basic part of the investigation that’s gonna involve interviewing anybody that has information, basically working on a timeline” Kelly said.

Witnesses said they saw a black four-door vehicle speed away, but they could not identify the number of people in the car. Anyone with information about the shooting should call Crime Stoppers at 352-372-STOP or the sheriff’s office at 352-955-1818.
