Man Charged With Shooting Girlfriend In Her Face

February 28, 2013

Multiple charges have been filed against a Pensacola man who shot his girlfriend in the face this morning during an argument.

Henry Blackmon, 21, of 4823 Sierra Drive, Pensacola, was charged with attempted murder, assault, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, vehicle theft, fleeing/eluding police, and driving with a suspended license.

The incident occurred around 2:30 a.m. at Blount Street and Watson Drive. The 23-year-old victim was driving a vehicle when she and Blackmon got into an argument. Blackmon then shot her in the face, pushed her out of the car and fled the scene, Pensacola Police said. The victim used her cell phone to call 911.

As police were responding to the area, Officer David Rogers saw the vehicle westbound on Cervantes Street. Officers Rogers and Coy McKenna followed the vehicle with emergency lights and sirens activated to “X” and Cervantes streets where Rogers intentionally collided with the suspect’s vehicle in an effort to stop it.

No one was injured during the collision but a chain link fence was damaged during the impact.

The female victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Her name has not been released .

    Two extremly young adults heading down extremely bad paths. If this incident does not straighten her out nothing will. Hopefully this young man does not get another chance, but unfortunately I don’t think this will be the last we hear of him. Filling up the jails with non-violent offenders too often puts dangerous individuals like him back on the street. Assuming he tried to shoot her, he needs to be put away for good.

    He is charged with homicide on the jail records…. Pray the victim recovers and walks away quickly from this abusive relationship…..
