One Toddler Shooting Suspect Extradited, Cantonment Man Still On The Run
October 27, 2011
One suspect in the July 15 shooting of a Pensacola toddler is now behind bars in Escambia County, while police continue to search for a Cantonment man in the case.
Shaquill Jerell Besst, 18, was transported Tuesday from Tangipahoa Parish Prison in Amite, LA, to the Escambia County Jail. His bond was set at $2 million during a Wednesday afternoon court appearance.
Authorities are still searching for former Cantonment resident Dwayne “Money” Pinestraw, 19. He is the suspected triggerman in the shooting a death of 19-month old Ty’Quarius Moultrie at a Pensacola Village apartment on Fairfield Drive.
Multiple shots were fired into the apartment back on July 15, according to Pensacola Police, killing Moultrie and wounding 23-year old Vincent Dennis.
Prior to the shooting, Besst and Pinestraw were reportedly robbed by two armed men as they sat in a car on a North Davis Highway gas station. Besst, Pinestraw, and two other men allegedly went to Pensacola Village a short time later and fired a .45 caliber gun through an apartment window.
Pinestraw is a black male, approximately 5-feet 6-inches tall and approximately 130 pounds. He should be considered armed and dangerous, according to Pensacola Police.
Anyone having information on Pinestraw’s location or the shooting is asked to contact Lt. Doug Baldwin at (850) 435-1908, Detective James Reese at (850) 435-1976, or the Desk Sergeant’s Office at (850) 435-1900.
