GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. -- A man who allegedly shot his neighbor on Friday has been charged with felony attempted murder.

Aaron F. Weaver, 21, reportedly shot Jeremy Johnson, 45, in the shoulder in the 3300 block of Citation Drive in Asbury Downs, according to Clay County Sheriff's Office Public Information Coordinator Mary Justino.

When responding to the area on Friday, dispatch advised police that Weaver had shot someone with a rifle, according to a CCSO arrest report. When police arrived at the neighborhood, they found Weaver backing a vehicle into a driveway.

Weaver was then ordered by police "to put his hands in the air and get on the ground, which he did."

When searching his person, police found two .22 caliber bullets in his front pocket.

The motive in the shooting is not yet clear, as CCSO records do not show history of problems between Weaver and Johnson, Justino said.

Earlier Friday, CCSO received reports of a man acting strange and possibly carrying a gun in Asbury Downs. Justino said it is believed what Weaver was that man.
