Deputies Release Identities Of Double Shooting Victims

January 31, 2012

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office has released the names of two men that were shot Monday afternoon, as the man charged in the double shooting remains behind bars.

The victims were identified as 22-year old Chris Eric Chapman and 30-year old Chez Everett, both of Pensacola. They were shot outside of a residence in the 2500 block of Truman Avenue.

Derrow Peterson, 22, was charged with two counts of attempted murder and booked into the Escambia County Jail without bond for the shooting.

Both Chatman and Everett were shot multiple times by Peterson as they drove up to a residence where Peterson was located, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Both victims sustained serious injuries and are still hospitalized at a local hospital. Their official condition is unknown at this time.

Deputies said Chatman has an active warrant for a shooting that occurred on December 21, 2011, at America’s Best Value Inn on Plantation Road. In that incident, Chatman shot into an occupied vehicle which was reported stolen with the Pensacola  Police Department. No one was injured in that incident.

    Also, if you will go into the jail information on this Mr. Peterson, you will find his background rather colorful. Child neglect, more than one count of battery, drug equipment, resisting arrest just to name a few. Thanks to ECSO for getting this winner off the streets as quick as they did!

    You can look up the judges on these above crimes and ask yourself “how did they get elected or appointed”

    This kind of activity is WHY I keep a loaded shotgun behind my front door and a FULLY LOADED .44 MAG next to me in a drawer by my coach just in case I need to help put them out of their misery. That is why people do drugs in the first place is because they are miserable with their life and no nothing else to do but to get into trouble. As for the LAW, They all know who and where drugs are being sold but do nothing about it until it actually falls into their laps without having to put any labor or work into catching these people. In my neighborhood there is a particular house that is dealing to people (law knows) in the neighborhood and they all come out of a trailor park and walk directly across the street into the backyard of this home to purchase their drugs and then want to hang out in the street and dare you to hit them. Well, I clipped one of those pieces of crap with my mirror on my vehicle because he would not move out of the road and seemed that he was daring me to him him and NOW when I come through they move quickly out of the street being they know I will not go around them nor stop for them. Road is made for cars not people to stand around or sit down for that matter which I have seen done as well. Have GUN will SHOOT and then ask question after I shoot.

    Ladies and Gents, I believe it’s about time to hoist the white flag. We’ve lost the war on drugs. The all seeing, all knowing government needs a new plan. The old one does’nt work and it’s too expensive. Maybe we could deport the offenders to Liberia or some other nation willing to accept these fine citizens. But, the current policies are not working and it’s about time to admit it.

    Yes ctown Truman Arms and Truman ave are very close by. Cordova Mall and Cordova Lanes are also very close by but hardly the same thing. Like they say close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. My point was it happened on Truman Ave. not at Truman Arms.

    Drugs? Get out of here. Really? So much popadoc for innocent until proven guilty,huh?

  10. ctown on January 31st, 2012 9:20 pm

    Truman Arms and truman ave is very close by isnt it?????If im wrong correct me again….. ;)

    The people living in Truman Arms haven’t realized yet that they have been in “prison” for years….ever notice the block wall, razor wire, their own store and the shack as you enter through the gate??? Seems to me that they would start to want to take back their area and drive those such as this guy out of there. You can’t drive past there without having to make sure you slow down to way under the speed limit as they will walk out in front of you daring you to hit them. They act as if they own the road….

    This certainly makes the decision to get a Conceal Carry Permit easier.

    I know this man, & it should be noted he turned himself in…what happened to innocent in2 proven guilty
