Authorities are still searching for a former Cantonment resident that is the suspected triggerman in the shooting a death of a Pensacola toddler, while another suspect is still awaiting extradition from Louisiana.

Fairfield Drive.

Another suspect in the shooting, 18-year old Shaquill Besst of Natalbany, La. ,is currently being held without bond in the Tangipahoa Parish Jail in Amite, La. He is awaiting extradition back to Florida.

    I would say the person that turns him in should get the $100,000 reward and all the gold in his front teeth.

    Put a $100,000 reward on him alive or dead. He will turn himself in just to stay alive.

    Sounds like Shaq and Mr Pinestraw have been drivin the I-10 and what did they gain. I would recomend you turn yourself in. The food on death row is better than what your eating now.
