Police offer info on Jan. 22 shooting an subsequent SWAT callout

From PPD: On January 22, 2022 at approximately 3:00 AM, two individuals in a vehicle were stopped at the red light at Palafox St and Garden St, when they were shot at multiple times by an unknown perpetrator. The investigation into this incident revealed that the perpetrator used a rifle to shoot at the victims and that the victims were shot at multiple times. The victims were seriously injured but survived the incident.

On February 3, 2022, members of the Pensacola Police Department executed a search warrant at 2515 N 7th Ave. This search warrant was in direct relation to the investigation of the incident at Palafox St and Garden St from January 22, 2022. Due to the high-risk nature of the incident, SWAT was utilized to serve the search warrant.

Members of SWAT knocked and announced their presence and waited approximately 15 seconds before opening the residence’s door. As the SWAT team opened the door, it was at that time that the resident of 2515 N 7th Ave, Corey Marioneaux, fired a single shot at a member of the SWAT team, striking his shield. Cory Marioneaux was arrested without further incident.

Why release the new information several days after the incident on 7th Avenue?

Friends and family of Marioneaux appeared on Channel 3 this past weekend, calling the man didn’t realize the police were at his door. They argued the narrative “painted” of Marioneauz isn’t true.  Read more.
