Three Arrested In Connection With Two Recent ‘Drug Related’ Shootings

June 11, 2019

Three people have been arrested in connection with two separate recent shooting incidents in Escambia County. Both shootings were drug related, according to the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.

John Louis Coker III is charged in a shooting Sunday more in the 8300 block of Tabaid Place in Myrtle Gove. Shots were fired into a home; no one was injured. He was charged with a weapons offense.

Jared Leon Carl Beers, 25, and James Franklin Frank II, 30, are charged with a shooting on Camelia Drive. A man was shot in the leg early Monday and is expected to recover. Beers was charged with aggravated battery and trafficking in amphetamine. Frank was charged with evidence destruction and trafficking in amphetamine.

Sheriff David Morgan said the ECSO is in the early stages of their investigation and additional arrests are expected.

The shootings are not related to the other latest shootings in the area, including the shooting death of 38-year old Chester Purifoy as the result of a June 5 drive-by shooting in the 500 block of Irene Lane in Cantonment.
