Three suspects were able to be immediately arrested following the discharging of firearms in the City limits of Ocala.

On April 14, 2013, at approximately 7:28 PM, Officer Ashley Stinehour was working a call in Carriage House Apartments, located at 2701 NE 7th Street, when she observed a black Hummer H2 stopped in the 700 Block of NE 28th Avenue. She then heard 5 shots fired from the passenger side of the vehicle, aimed into the area of Spring Manor Apartments, across the street. The vehicle then took off at a high rate of speed, northbound on NE 28th Ave. Officer Stinehour advised Dispatch and fellow officers over the radio of this information, and got into her vehicle to try and catch up to the Hummer.

Officer Ronald Malone observed the vehicle in the 2200 block of NE 14th St., headed westbound. He attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but the vehicle refused to stop until coming to the 1500 block of NE 14th St. Three (3) subjects were then located in the vehicle: B/M Christopher Foster, DOB 12/20/65 (driver); B/M Adrian Isham, DOB 2/22/85 (passenger); and B/M Natahniel Peterson, DOB 10/13/84 (passenger). Spent shell casings were located in the vehicle and on the hood of the vehicle, but not the firearms. However, Deputy J. Shealy of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, who was responding to assist, was flagged down by a citizen who advised of two firearms laying in the roadway, in the westbound outside lane of the 1700 block of NE 14th St. A Llama .380 caliber semiautomatic pistol and an Arminius .22 caliber pistol were recovered from that location. Both Isham and Peterson tested positive for gunshot residue. All three were arrested and transported to the Marion County Jail. There was no apparent damage or injury from the shooting.

Once at the jail, Foster was found to have cocaine on his person, in both powder and “crack” form, and packaged for sale.
