Man found lying in street in critical condition

A Christopher Street resident was awakened shortly before 12:00 a.m. Saturday night to find an injured man lying in the road behind his home, according to a report received by Historic City News in St Augustine this evening.

The victim was identified to reporters as 28-year old St Johns County resident Jesse J Greene III, by St Johns County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Kevin Kelshaw.

Detectives are still trying to determine how and why the victim was injured.

Greene was transported by St Johns County Rescue to Flagler Hospital in St Augustine; but, due to the severity of his injuries, was later transported to the critical care unit at Shands Jacksonville Medical Center.

Anyone with information concerning this crime is asked to contact the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office at (904) 824-8304. You can remain anonymous and possibly be eligible for a cash reward by calling CrimeStoppers of Northeast Florida at 1-888-277-TIPS (8477).
