A 23-year-old man died after being shot Friday night during an attempted robbery at an ATM in Jacksonville, authorities said.

Police say they responded about 8:30 p.m. to the 600 block of West Main Street and found Marcus Israel in a vehicle that had crashed into a building. He was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

"The investigation has revealed that this was an attempted Aggravated Robbery at an ATM," Jacksonville police Capt. Kenny Boyd said in a statement.

Israel was taken to a local hospital, where he died Saturday.

The shooter is described as a man of an unknown race with a medium build who stood between 5-foot-6 and 6-feet tall. He wore white tennis shoes, blue jeans and a dark-colored hooded coat and rode a bicycle to and from the area.

The man should be considered armed and dangerous, authorities said.

No arrest has been made.

man of an unknown race = dark-colored hooded coat
black man = hoodie

Seems the ArkDemGaz is guilty of prejudicial racial profiling....

ATMs are the salt licks, or baited deer stands, for these sorts of predators. Be super careful when you approach one.

Jacksonville is starting to be as violent as Pine Bluff & Little Rock.

PrettyP,
How sad to think you have excuses for this young man who chose a life of crime and now adds murder to his resume.
If persons like you in his community continue to make excuses for thugs like this, how do you expect things in your community to change.
I don't live in Jacksonville, but I live close-by, and I consider this "our" community.
This amounts to another excuse for why there are more blacks in prison than whites.
Keep blaming others for crimes like this and then wonder why things don't change.
If you do the crime, be man enough to accept the penalty and accept the consequences without the pity party.
