A Jacksonville man died Monday after he surprised two burglars when he returned home and one of them shot him dead in a neighborhood near First Coast High on the city’s Northside, authorities said.

The shooting occurred before 2:30 p.m. in the 1100 block of Native Dancer Court in the quiet Saddlewood subdivision off Starratt Road, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

“It appears that he had just gotten home from work, was coming inside and was met as he was entering the house by the two individuals,” Sgt. Jay Farhat said.

Farhat said officers are looking for two black males in dark clothing who could be in their teens or 20s and were seen leaving the neighborhood in a black 2010 Ford Escape SUV.

Farhat said there were signs of forced entry but no evidence of a struggle at the home of the victim, who was later identified by police as 50-year-old Kyle Simpson.
