Man Shot Two Weeks Ago Fatally Shot Wednesday Morning In Escambia County

October 16, 2019

A man shot just two weeks ago in Escambia County was shot again, this time fatally, early Wednesday morning.

About 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office responded to a shots fired call at Massachusetts Avenue and Stara Circle. They found 29-year old Rashud J.  Dexter deceased on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds. The incident has been described as a “gunfight” with multiple shots exchanged between Dexter and the suspect or suspects.

“There were witnesses to this shooting, but they are not being forthcoming with information at this time,” the ECSO said in a statement..

Dexter was also the victim of a shooting on September 26 in the 900 block of Lucerne Avenue. The ECSO said he was there to buy narcotics when he was robbed and shot.

Last month when deputies asked Dexter to provide a name or description of the person that shot him, he refused.

Anyone with information about either shooting is asked to call the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office at (850) 436-9620 or Crime Stoppers at (850) 433-STOP.

    It’s interesting how those people who witnessed this shooting aren’t forthcoming with information, yet, if a police officer had been the one who shot him, they all would be lining up to give their version of what happened. I guess lives only matter if they are shot by the police.

    These so called eye witnesses won’t ome forward yet they are the ones that cackle the loudest when a crime hits close to home, I say this, PUT UP OR SHUT UP

    Sounds like he should have spent a little time on the range

    @Bob; Morgan said that also before this term; yet he ran.

    Obviously, to some “witnesses” that are very concerned for their own safety.
    Can’t really blame them for that as these thugs are Very Serious about finishing off the competition or those who don’t play their game.

    sheriff Morgan says crime is going down and that is his very flawed perception of reality.
    Thankfully, he claims will not run again and maybe now too late to jump in because he feels we need him–NOT.

    Crime is obviously up in Escambia County even though Morgan says otherwise and look at the road rage problems do to speeders and tailgaters.

    I wouldn’t be forthcoming with information either, do you see what happened to him? They came back to finish the job. Pensacola is getting BAD, as are the surrounding cities.

    “there were witnesses to this shooting but they’re not being forthcoming with information” Life in the hood. This kind of garbage is allowed to continue because the people who live there won’t stop it. Thug life will continue until GOOD people quit letting it happen.

    No surprise there. Just read his clerk of court records.

    It’s only sad because the other shooter wasn’t laying beside him.
    We’ve let narcotics, both the selling and the doing, kill our community for too long.

    But until this community starts speaking out and finger-pointing the suspects, their “excellent, kind, and caring” sons, fathers, neighbors, and brothers are going to keep dying on the side of the road.
