JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A suspect is in custody following a shooting December 12 that injured five people.

Carnell Davis, 22, is the accused gunman behind the quintuple shooting that occurred at the intersection of Tyler Street and Windle Street Wednesday night, according to a report from the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

The five victims, Dominique Kelsey, 26, Cornelius McNeill, 20, Caron Black, 25, Jamar Evans and Breon Allen, 23, were standing outside a convenience store located at 852 Tyler Street when they were shot.  According to the Jacksonville Sheriff's office the bullets came from a blue Ford Explorer Davis was driving.  Officers say Davis then fled the scene.

Kelsey suffered a gunshot wound to her back, McNeill suffered gunshot wounds to his back and leg, Black suffered a gunshot wound to the left foot, Evans suffered gunshots wound to his right arm and right thigh and Allen suffered gunshot wounds to both legs, according to the report. All five victims were transported to Shands Medical Center for treatment of their injuries.

Davis was taken into custody Thursday and is being held without bond. Davis is charged with first degree attempted murder.

Davis was released from jail September 20, 2012 after serving time for cocaine trafficking, marijuana possession and resisting arrest, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Department of Corrections.

Davis was also arrested and released on bond in June 2012 for possession of a weapon or ammunition by a convicted felon.
