A fatal shooting occurred at Cabana Beach apartment complex at about 3 a.m. Friday morning.

A 22-year-old man was charged with murder early Thursday morning after allegedly shooting another man multiple times at Cabana Beach apartments.

The victim died this morning.

Gainesville Police took Zeng Jean Jacques, also known as Bryan Jacques, into custody.

He was charged with first-degree premeditated murder, a felony, and booked into the Alachua County Jail.

Officials found the victim, Theoderick Brown, 22, with what appeared to be about 10 gunshot wounds, said Cpl. Angelina Valuri, GPD public information officer.

The shooting happened at about 3:20 a.m. outside Building 26 at Cabana Beach apartments, 1601 SW 51st Terrace, Valuri said.

Brown lived at an apartment one building away, she said.

GPD received a 911 call at 3:26 a.m. reporting that someone had been shot at the apartment complex.

He was transported to Shands Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Valuri said.

Officers checked for witnesses in nearby apartments.

Jacques was in one of them, Valuri said.

She said he had a 9mm semiautomatic pistol, which was confiscated by police.

A witness said Brown and Jacques had been arguing before the incident.

Brittany Holt, a 21-year-old UF elementary education senior, has lived at Cabana Beach for just over a year and said she has never heard of any previous crime in the area.

She regularly walks her French bulldog, Charlie, at night.

"I'm not going to leave [Cabana Beach], but I probably won't walk my dog at night anymore - at least not by myself."
