JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is searching for a man wanted for a murder that occurred July 25 on Moncrief Village Street East.

Officers are looking for Corey Bright. Bright is one of four co-defendants identified as a shooter, according to a news release from Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer Melissa Bujeda.
