East Williston Drive-By Shooting


January 12, 2018

 On January 11, 2018 a large
number of deputies and investigators responded to a reported shooting in the
area of County Road 318 and NE 207th Court outside of Williston,
Florida.  The deputies were assisted by
Williston Police Department units and personnel from the Levy County Department
of Public Safety.  Investigators C.J.
Perryman and Scott Stancil were assigned as the lead LCSO investigators. 

Once on scene, deputies located
one elderly male victim suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.  The scene was secured and the victim was transported
to a hospital as a trauma alert patient by the Levy County DPS. 

The investigation revealed that
an unknown person or persons had fired at least 12 rounds from an unknown
firearm into a residence on NE 207th Court.  The victim and another person (who was not
injured) were inside the living room of the residence at the time of the shooting.  Witnesses told investigators that the bullets
had been fired from an unknown type of vehicle that had a loud exhaust system
on it.  The vehicle fled the area prior
to the arrival of law enforcement. 

At this time, deputies have
received very little cooperation from potential witnesses regarding this
incident and the investigation is continuing.  Citizens are encouraged to
report any and all potential leads in order to help prevent future violent
