VIDEO: Suspect Arrested In Royal St. Augustine Double Shooting
HOMICIDE/SHOOTING UPDATE: Last night we posted regarding a double shooting which occurred along Florida Club Boulevard (see previous post below). Overnight, one of the two victims in the shooting was pronounced deceased at Flagler Hospital, while the second remains in critical condition at Memorial Hospital in Jacksonville.
Deputies received a description of the shooter from eyewitnesses, and one of the victims was able to convey some information related to the suspects identity, before being flown by air ambulance to Jacksonville. The search would later reveal a subject matching the suspect's description in a nearby pond, alongside a golf course.
The subject was detained for questioning and was discovered to be the same individual named earlier by one of the two victims. Forensic teams processed the original scene as well as the path the alleged suspect traveled as he fled. SJSO Divers were also called in to begin the process of searching the numerous ponds located in and around the crime scene. That process is continuing today in the search for additional evidence.
The suspect has been identified as Anfernee Javon Wilson, 19, of St. Augustine and is being held on Capital First Degree Murder, as well as, weapon violations of firing into a vehicle. Additioanl charges are pending the outcome of the investigation.
Due to Marcy's Law, we are not currently permitted to provide information on the victims. The investigation is ongoing and developing.
