Panama City Shooting

Panama City Police are still searching for a man they believe shot a young Lynn Haven woman while holding her and her friend as apparent hostages.

Twenty-year-old Christina Raffield and 18-year-old Tonya Winkle say they went to some apartments on East 19th Street near Harrison Avenue to pose for 58-year-old Manuel Ramirez.

Once inside the apartment, the two girls say Ramirez allegedly pulled a small caliber handgun and at some point he began shooting.

The girls fled the apartment and drove down the street to a funeral home where they called police.

There is a reward being offered for Ramirez’s arrest.

If you have any information, please call the Panama City Police Department at 850-872-3100.
