The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office has made an arrest in connection with a shooting around one a.m. June 20th in Fort Walton Beach.

33-year old Wallace Lance Morris, Jr. is charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Deputies responding to 2806 Bradford Place learned Morris, who is renting a room at that residence from Ernest Delfino, got involved in an argument with Delfino over money. The argument turned into a physical altercation and Morris pulled out a 9mm semi-automatic handgun and shot Delfino in the chest. Two women in the home helped Morris put Delfino into a car and they then drove him to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center.

Morris told deputies the shooting was an accident.
