Press Release: Three people are in jail today after an early morning shooting leaves one man injured.
At around 12:09 am this morning, deputies responded to the 1300 block of North T Street for a reported shooting victim. It was there that deputies found a victim with a gunshot wound to the leg.
The victim, identified as Timothy Jerome Curry, 41, of Pensacola, told deputies that he was shot by the occupants of a black truck, with dark tinted windows. Curry said the truck fled the scene after he was shot.
Medics transported Curry to Baptist Hospital to be treated for his injury.
At around 12:17 am, while deputies were still busy investigating the shooting, they were notified of a vehicle crash involving a black truck with dark tinted windows. It was reported that the vehicle had crashed into a power pole in the 4000 block of Palafox St.
When deputies arrived at this scene of the crash, they discovered three handguns in an unoccupied black 2001 Ford F150 truck. One of the guns was reported stolen in a vehicle burglary earlier this year. The truck was later determined to be a stolen vehicle.
Patrol deputies, believing this was the truck used in the shooting on T Street, began to search the area for suspects. All of the suspects were apprehended shortly after the search began.
Arrested were Quamain Tyjuan Williams, 18, of Pensacola, Brandon Lashawn Holliman, 19, of Pensacola and Candace Sabe Abrams, 24, of Pensacola. All three were charged with Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon and Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. They were booked in the Escambia County Jail and held on a $25,000.00 bond. This investigation is on-going and more charges may be forthcoming.
During this investigation deputies recovered the stolen vehicle, a stolen handgun and seized the other two handguns.
