Escambia County sheriff’s deputies were called to a report of shots fired at Trenton Drive and Edison Drive. When they arrived, they found the body of Berry in the street. He had been shot multiple times.

The investigation showed Yeldon contacted Berry on social media to buy marijuana. The defendants tried to pay Berry with a counterfeit $100. Berry attempted to get his money back but he was shot in the chest four times.

After the shooting, Yeldon and a co-defendant, Deon Nettles, helped to clean the car of broken glass and shell casings, according to the state attorney’s office.

Nettles was sentenced to 96 months in state prison for his role in the crime.
