UPDATE (12/17/2020 8:30 a.m.) The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office says they have made an arrest in a deadly shooting that happened Tuesday night on Dover Avenue near Buckingham Road. However, deputies continue the search for another man wanted in connection to the shooting.

Deputies arrested Omar Leandre Collier Sr. after they say Javonte Deshawn Shoemo was found dead from a gunshot wound and James Darnell Shoemo was found suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Deputies are still looking for Freddie Levi Jefferson who is wanted for felony murder and aggravated battery.

According to ECSO, during the investigation it was discovered all four men, the two victims and two suspects, were together earlier that evening and an argument may have led to the shooting.
