Local Man Allegedly Fires Gun At Woman In Cantonment

June 19, 2019

A local man is accused of shooting at a woman in Cantonment.

Denarion Keon Wallace, 24, was charged aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of ammunition by a convicted felon.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office responded to a shots fired disturbance Monday afternoon in the area of Lake Drive after an anonymous caller reported hearing gunfire and people screaming.  A witness told deputies that her cousin got into a verbal argument with Wallace, who pulled out a small black handgun and made the statement “You better get off Lake Drive”, according to arrest report.

He then allegedly pointed the gun toward the victim and fired two rounds. Both rounds missed.

After Wallace was detained, a 9mm bullet was located in his pants pocket, the report states. Wallace told deputies there was a verbal argument, but there was no gun involved. He also told deputies he found the bullet somewhere on the road.

Wallace remained in the Escambia County Jail Wednesday morning. He was being held without bond.

    WHERE and WHEN did some people get it into their minds that it is Perfectly Acceptable to SHOOT or Stab or Beat another human over just Stupid Stuff?

    Denarion, you have already been Convicted of a felony are you really that anxious to go to Prison over an argument?

    Where is our world headed?

    I feel EXTREMELY sorry for the elderly that have to live in this type of environment. Worked all their lives, retired & just want to live out the remainder of their years PEACEFULLY! NOT just this neighborhood, take your pick throughout Cantonment, Pensacola & some places throughout the world these days! Crime has no address! However, I recently moved from Pensacola, living here my entire life & I’ve discovered there is a lot LESS CRIME in other states. No fault of ESCO, they can ONLY do so much without MORE MONEY! And THIS opens up an entire new conversation! WILL POST under “NEW CONVERSATION”
