MILTON — Two people wanted in connection with a Sunday morning drive-by shooting have turned themselves in to law enforcement.
Gregory Omar Johnson, 27, and his 24-year-old girlfriend, Barbara Leann Baggett, were arrested at about 6 p.m. Monday after media outlets around the area reported lawmen were looking for them, according to Sgt. Scott Haines, a spokesman for the Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office.
The search for the couple began after Johnson allegedly leaned out the passenger window of the car Baggett was driving and shot at a man standing in his driveway on Julia Drive.
The man, who was uninjured, dropped to the ground when the shots were fired around 10:30 a.m., according to a news release from the Sheriff's Office.
The release stated that Johnson fired about four shots. A bullet hole was found in the man's vehicle and a spent round was also located in the area.
According to the Sheriff’s office, the vehicle sped away after shots were fired. The event is believed to be in retaliation for Johnson’s cousin’s arrest in Escambia County on Friday.
Once they turned themselves in, both Johnson and Baggett were arrested for aggravated assault with a firearm, discharging a firearm in public and firing a weapon into a dwelling or vehicle.
Johnson was also charged for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
