Numerous Shots Fired Near Pensacola State College

November 29, 2011

[Updated] Numerous shots were fired in what was believed to be a drug related incident Monday night near Pensacola State College.

Numerous bullet holes were found inside and outside apartments at the Arbor Club Apartments at 700 College Boulevard after the 6:30 shooting.

Pensacola Police Department investigators said they recovered a handgun and rifle, live rounds, spent shell casings, cocaine and marijuana during the investigation.

The investigation has revealed at least one person is believed to have started the incident and another eventually returned fire, said Detective Jon Thacker.

Numerous people have been interviewed and arrests are pending. One person – Jimmy Gilliams, 22, of 1260 Cheyenne Circle, Pensacola – was arrested after officers learned he had outstanding warrants with the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.

No injuries were reported, and Pensacola Police are continuing their investigation into the incident.

    Before apartments were put there that area was a nice residential area. Glad I’m not there now!
