JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a woman was fatally shot in the middle of a Jacksonville street as she tried to end her relationship with her boyfriend.

Jacksonville Sheriff's Office spokesman Shawn Coarsey says 24-year-old Rolisha Thomas and Calvin Wright got into an argument just after noon on Thanksgiving Day. The argument escalated as the two went outside and on Almeda Street in northwest Jacksonville.

The Florida Times-Union reports that's when 24-year-old Wright took out a handgun and shot Thomas several times. She was taken to the hospital, where she died.

Wright fled the scene. Police say he turned himself in on Friday morning. There was no word on what charges he faces.

Officials say Wright had a criminal record and had recently been released from prison.
