JACKSONVILLE — Two women are being treated for injuries suffered in a shooting and fire at a Jacksonville motel.
Police say the incident took place early Friday at a Motel 6 near Interstate 95 in Jacksonville.
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Melissa Bejuda told the Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/1546i3G ) both women are in their 20s.
Police say they believe the fire was deliberately set, but they did not release a motive. It was not clear whether the women rented a room at the motel or if they knew the suspect.
Authorities are searching for a 2002, four-door, dark forest green Buick.
Bejuda says the driver should be considered armed and dangerous.
No further details were immediately available.
