GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Gainesville Police Department (GPD) officers and an Alachua County Sheriff’s Office (ASO) deputy worked together to apprehend four juveniles following a drive-by shooting last night at Carver Gardens, 1101 SE 15th Street.
Multiple GPD units responded to Carver Gardens after receiving calls that people were shooting inside the apartment complex. An ASO Deputy was flagged down near Carver Gardens and saw the suspect vehicle fleeing the area. The deputy attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle, but it fled.
The deputy pursued the vehicle, and the pursuit ended at 1900 SE 13th Place, where the driver abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot; the vehicle crashed.
After information was provided by witnesses and a K9 track was initiated, four subjects, all juveniles, were detained at 1228 SE 19th Terrace. One of the juveniles was identified as the shooter, and one was identified by the deputy as the driver of the vehicle that fled.
While law enforcement was investigating the incident, the vehicle was reported stolen. Eighteen shell casings were collected in the parking lot at Carver Gardens. No shooting victims or bullet impacts have been identified at this time, but the investigation is continuing.
The juvenile identified by the deputy has been charged with aggravated fleeing and eluding and resisting arrest. GPD did not provide the charges for the other three juveniles.
