1 Dead in Destin Shooting

A Jamaican man was killed and another injured in a shooting that took place around 8:30 Tuesday evening in the Gulf Terrace Condominiums parking lot in Destin.

During the course of the investigation, the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office developed a person of interest they wanted to question in connection with the shooting. 26-year old Arderius Matyae Warren of Crestview is charged at this point with distribution of marijuana and destroying or tampering with evidence.

Attempts to save one victim at the scene were unsuccessful. The second shooting victim was taken to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola where he was treated and released.

Around 2 a.m. this morning, investigators searching for Warren located him walking down Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard in Crestview. He was taken into custody after refusing to stop for deputies and throwing a bag of marijuana over a fence.

The investigation continues and more details will be forthcoming.
