The shooting at the Moorings Apartments on Old Spanish Trail Friday evening, Nov. 19 that killed Prentiss Mitchell may be tied to the November 6 drive-by shooting on Texar Drive of Joel Harris.
The buzz among family and friends is Mitchell was killed in the parking lot of the Moorings because the shooters believed that he was connected to Harris’ death.
Last week, the Escambia Sheriff’s Office said that they were looking for three men for questioning in regards to Harris’ murder. One,Darius Devon Williams, 19, was arrested on charges of two counts of failure to appear, contempt of court and aggravated assault without intent to kill. He is being held in the Escambia County Jail without bond. All of the charges are unrelated to the murder. The two others were Kendell Jamal Cushon, 20; and Anthony Martiz Whitehurst, 20.
On Wednesday, Nov. 24 Aaron Cornelius Mitchell turned himself. Mitchell has been accused murdering Prentiss Mitchell (no relation) at the Moorings.
