Gunfire Exchanged In Cantonment Street; Man Charged After Bullets Hit Vehicles

February 10, 2020

A Cantonment man allegedly involved in the exchange of a gunfire in a local street is facing charges after bullets hit two nearby vehicles.

Davonta Terrell Allen, 20, was arrested on an outstanding warrant for a deadly missiles weapons offense and criminal mischief with property damage.

On September 1, 2019, an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office deputy responded to the 100 block of Sheppard Street in Cantonment for a criminal mischief complaint. A resident told deputies that he found a bullet hole in the back rear window and the windshield of his Chevrolet S-10.  His Isuzu SUV also had a bullet hole in the left rear fender well and backseat.  He estimated the damage to both vehicles at $1,600.

The victim said several people exchanged gunfire near his home about an hour earlier. He told deputies Allen was one of those shooting and later identified him from a photo lineup.

Allen remained in the Escambia County Jail  with bond set at $15,000.

    I’m with you Master Mechanic. Back in the day people could avoid jail time by serving their country. I believe they have done away with that. Bring it back and teach these punks manners, respect, and a chance to give back instead of taking.

    @ Rhoda
    “Guns, guns.and more guns, oh my. How does these folks get the money for guns???”

    They STEAL them, Rhoda.
    They STEAL them during Break-Ins at homes of people who own them..
    They STEAL them from UNLOCKED Vehicles they go thru and STEAL them from Careless owners.
    They STEAL Guns, Credit Cards, Wallets, Electronic devices, Vehicles, KEYS to homes, offices, vehicles that people leave in their cars and trucks because it’s too much trouble to remove them and LOCK UP.

    If that bullet hit someone bond would probably be five more thousand dollars. Thats what we have come to now.

    Man o man. How those guns have a mind of their own….. No way a human would use a gun and do that. Gotta get rid of the guns……

    Wild, wild West. Pretty soon, Ben and the boys will be circling back to shoot the gun slingers. Thank you NRA and Trump.

    Cantonment has turned into the Wild West. That’s why I moved to Molino.

    Just shows another instance where it’s not the guns fault but the individual who has the gun and misused his right! If he defended himself from bodily harm is one thing but just to be shooting at “something” is deadly and irresponsible
