Pensacola Police have arrested Raymond Demarcus Durant (12/12/2001), and charged him with aggravated assault, use of a firearm during a felony, and possession of a firearm by a Florida delinquent adult felon. These charges stem from a shooting incident yesterday in the 800 block of West Strong Street where Durant was seen chasing and firing the weapon at other individuals, none of whom were injured.
Officers attempted to stop a vehicle during the night last night which matched the description of a vehicle that was involved in recent shootings in the Pensacola area. The car fled from officers and a short pursuit began. The driver stopped the car at 1101 W. Cross Street, and ran inside the house. Officers arrested the driver of the vehicle (Christopher Cobb) for fleeing and eluding and other traffic charges. Officers also discovered that Durant was inside the house. Officers have obtained a search warrant for 1101 W. Cross Street in an attempt to locate evidence to recent shootings.
