Sheriff's Office Asking Public Help with Shooting Investigation
The Bay County Sheriff's Office is currently investigating a shooting that occurred on Sunday, December 15, and are asking for the public's assistance with information related to the shooting.
At approximately 5 pm, Deputies responded to a 911 call of a shooting that occurred at Sherman Pines Mobile Home Park located at 1940 Sherman Avenue.
Upon arrival, deputies discovered a 14 year old male, Devin Williams, with a single gunshot wound to his left arm. The victim stated that he was shot by a black male in a gray four-door vehicle. An additional witness at the scene, Christian Johnson, described the suspect as a black male, 5'08", 200 pounds in a gray four-door vehicle, possibly a Chevrolet Impala. Johnson stated that the male pulled up to the mailbox area at the trailer park, and started asking them questions about marijuana. As they approached the vehicle, the male driver reportedly fired three rounds from a handgun striking Williams once. The victim was transported to Bay Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
During the course of the investigation, Christian Johnson,(B/M, DOB/120796), was charged with Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer after becoming uncooperative and kicking one of the responding deputies.
Investigators with the Criminal Investigations Division responded, but were unable to develop any significant details due to the witnesses being uncooperative.
Anyone with information concerning this shooting is asked to contact the Bay County Sheriff's Office at 747-4700, or Panhandle Crimestoppers at 785-TIPS(8477).
