As was reported by one of my readers on Facebook, there was another shooting in Pensacola.

PPD Release: Pensacola Police are investigating a shooting that occurred earlier this morning in the 200 block of East Hernandez Street and sent a woman to a hospital for treatment of a leg wound.

Officers Trevor Mayo and Bradley Craig were conducting a traffic stop around 1 a.m. within a few blocks of the incident when they heard several gun shots. As officers were responding to the area,police dispatch received a call from the residence.

Officer Alex Bell also arrived at the scene and contacted the 22-year-old female victim, who said she was bending over near her front door to get a bottle of water from a case of water by the door when she heard several shots fired outside. One of the bullets struck her in the leg. The victim was taken to a local hospital where she was treated and released.

A motive for the incident remains under investigation.

The Gun Crime Response Team was activated.

Anyone having information on the incident is asked to contact the Pensacola Police Department at 435–1900.
