Observations and musings on Jacksonville Politics

Long-time Jax Crime fighter dies of gunshot wound

The story.

Sheriff John Rutherford, a close friend of Hires’s, went to the home on Old Plank Road and said there is no initial indication that foul play is involved. Rutherford said gun cleaning supplies were discovered at the scene and there is some indication Hires may have been cleaning a gun at the time of his death. Rutherford said police are still searching for a cause and an autopsy will be done.

I have known Mr. Hires for years.  My thoughts are with his family.

Other local blogs are covering the story.
