April 5, 2013

Two people were shot in Escambia County Thursday afternoon, and  woman was cut on the head with a knife Thursday night in Pensacola.

Brent Shooting

Just after 4 p.m., deputies received a report of a shooting in the area of Cary Memorial Drive and Lenox Parkway.  Witnesses told deputies that the victim was shot multiple times following a disturbance. The victim then walked to a nearby yard on Quina Way where he collapsed. He was transported to a local hospital by Escambia County EMS with unknown injuries.

Further details have not yet been released as the investigation continues.

Old Palafox Shooting

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating a shooting that took place at approximately 4:30 p.m. m at the In and Out Deli, 6861 North Palafox Street.

The victim transported to local hospital. Early indications are the victim was involved in an accidental shooting, but the investigation will continue by the Sheriff’s Office and the State Attorney’s Office.

Woman Cut On The Head

An argument between two women escalated into a physical confrontation Thursday night, ending with one of them being cut on the head and the other going to jail.

Sharise Lewis, 19, was charged with burglary with assault or battery.
The incident occurred just before 7 p.m. at Pensacola Village on East Fairfield Drive. Pensacola Police Officer Coy McKenna said Lewis and Shavonyul James, 22, also of Pensacola Village, got into an argument on the front porch of James’ apartment. The two women ended up inside James’ apartment where they continued fighting.

James told police she told Lewis multiple times to leave her apartment, but she didn’t and
began hitting her. James said she feared for her safety and the safety of her children so she began defending herself. As a result, she grabbed a knife and cut Lewis on the head.

Police were told the incident occurred after James’ 3-year-old son and Lewis’ son, who is approximately the same age, had been playing earlier. James’ son hit Lewis’ son, and Lewis became angry.

Lewis was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

    “I suspect the spike in violent crime over the last few years has to do with post-Katrina refugees moving from New Orleans to surrounding cities”

    Could be, but at least one accused shooter was home grown in Century.
    We can’t blame New Orleans for all of it.

    David for proper blame

    To continue to blame the post Katrina influx is ridiculous. How long is that excuse even acknowledgeable? Why dont we go back and blame Columbus for his migration? Or the settlers that founded each city? Crime is Crime and we need to be searching for a way to deter it.

    I suspect the spike in violent crime over the last few years has to do with post-Katrina refugees moving from New Orleans to surrounding cities. I’d love to see statistics on the rise in violent crimes surrounding New Orleans compared to the rise in other cities/states where NOLA refugees probably didn’t travel to.

    Oh Pensacola… what a great city you are to live in. I realize there is crime everywhere you go, but it’s just annoying hearing about this kind of stuff every single day around here!

    Pops, I tend to agree with the new re-naming! What’s happening to beautiful Pensacola? If it’s not happening there, then we read about the crime in Cantonment.
    I travel from Atmore to shop at the malls in Pensacola, stopping by Walmart in Ensley on way home… now, I skip that Walmart because of the crimes and wait to have my husband go with me to Pensacola– it’s not safe anymore and its sad to see a wonderful city going down.

    Was planning on moving back to the Pensacola area to be closer to family. Maybe I should rethink that decision.
