Toddler Was In The Car As Cantonment Woman Was Shot, ECSO Says

November 28, 2023

There have been no arrests announced in the shooting of a woman who was in a car with a toddler Sunday night in, and the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office says it appears the shooting was not random.

The incident occurred about 8:25 p.m. in the area of Sheppard and Lincoln streets, a few blocks west of Carver Park. The woman was reportedly in a parked Nissan Altima along with an adult male and a toddler.

The woman was airlifted to a Pensacola hospital where she was listed in critical condition.

Escambia Sheriff Chip Simmons said investigators believe the intended target was the adult male driver of the car, not the woman or child. The ECSO said the shooting could be retaliation possibly for a shooting of three people in the same area earlier this year. Sunday night’s shooting occurred at the same residence.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office is continuing their investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 850-433-STOP or the ECSO at 850-436-9620.

    I think they should detain the male that was in the car along with the ones that live at the house where the shooting occurred until some one speaks up and spills the beans as to who the shooter was. No one wants to be put in jail for some thing someone else did.

    Thugs don’t care if a baby or elderly persons are in a Targeted vehicle, they will shoot and intimidate, wound, kill whoever the bullets hit. Their bullets have no guidance systems and the guns would be innocently safe without the gangsters using them to shoot at folks.
    Seems we have numerous “mis-identified” shootings where the shooter scum just pumping rounds into a vehicle because “it look like” their intended prey.
    These punks should be locked away without bail until trial and if found guilty go to prison for life.

    Not to worry, Pensacola doesn’t have gangs.

    This event occurred in the heart of Cantonment just south of Muscogee Road, not Pensacola. 32533.

    Could have been anyone driving a similar Altima and be shot. Pensacola is Chicago or LA. Get out.
