GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Tyquane Sendrell Elmore, 30, who was released from state prison in April, was arrested early this morning after allegedly firing a gun at a friend who had given him a place to stay.
The victim reportedly told a Gainesville Police Department officer said that he was aware of Elmore’s background and allowed him to live at his house. He reportedly said he approached Elmore about threats being made toward his family because he believed Elmore may know something about the location of the person making the threats. According to the victim, after a brief conversation, Elmore took a firearm from his waistband and fired 4-5 shots in the direction of the victim while running away.
When Elmore was detained, he reportedly had a concealed firearm in his waistband. He was convicted and sentenced to 32 months in prison (with credit for 600 days in jail) in 2021 on charges arising from an incident in which a 3-year-old picked up his gun and shot himself in the hand; a charge of battery while detained was later added.
Elmore has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and carrying a concealed firearm without a permit, along with violation of probation. He is being held without bail for violating probation and on $300,000 bond on the other charges.
