Police said Rafael Valentin sideswiped two cars while driving on Southside Boulevard about 5:30 p.m. After a brief chase and striking more vehicles, Valentin got out of his car near Tinsletown and fired what appeared to be a handgun at officers, according Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Chief of Detectives Steve Weintraub. Two officers then fired at Valentine, striking him in the chest, Weintraub said. Valentin was pronounced dead at the scene. "We then inspected Mr. Valentin's handgun and learned it to be an accurate replica of a Glock pistol." Weintraub said Friday morning. "This type of replica weapon does indeed have a working slide, it shoots projectiles and makes a shooting-type sound when fired." Police began pursuing the man's vehicle when the 2001 green Mazda he was driving swerved onto the shoulder of the road, hitting a police car and another vehicle pulled over for a traffic violation. Southside Boulevard was closed for four hours while police investigated the shooting. It was not clear what caused the man to shoot at authorities. There were no drugs or stolen property discovered in the car and Valentin had no criminal record, according to police. "We are continuing our investigation hope to learn the reason for Mr. Valentin's aggressive behavior," Weintraub aid. "Our sympathies do go out to the Valentin family." The two officers involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation, which is standard procedure in police-involved shootings. Valentin's father told Channel 4 that his son was under medical treatment for what he described as "mental problems." The family said that after graduating from Orange Park High School in 2003, Valentin had attended the University of North Florida and Florida State University.
