Update: Men sought for questioning in shooting death
UPDATE: Escambia county deputies are looking for three people of interest in the shooting death of 14 year old Kenteyonna Anderson. They are being sought for questioning. They are looking for 23-year-old Jacuest Norris, 28-year-old Quentin Gholston, and 21-year-old Juvonte Huff. The sheriff's office is still looking for the shooter.
Deputies say there was an arugment on Maxwell Street around 9;00 Thursday night when suddenly shots were fired. Fourteen-year-old Kenteyonna Anderson was shot mutliple times. She was taken to Baptist Hospital where she later died.
A makeshift memorial is now set up right where Anderson died. People came by all afternoon Friday, paying their respects.
Ever since the shooting, tensions in this neighborhood have been high. Witnesses say Anderson was hanging out with friends when suddenly, shots were fired. They say she was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
"Why would you shoot where you know there's a lot of kids? They're all playing on this street right here," said Shay Harris who lives in the neighborhood.
Those who knew Anderson well describe her as a sweet girl who was always there for her family and friends. Tiffanie Loveless was Anderson's best friend. The two grew up together. Loveless can't believe she's gone and is left wondering why something like this happened.
"She'd help you with anything," said Loveless.
Anderson was a freshmen at Pensacola High School. Grief counselors were available at the school all day helping students make sense of what happened.
So far this year, there have been 22 people shot and killed by gunfire in Escambia County. Neighbors are shaken up, and say the violence needs to stop.
"I ain't got no kids, but it could have been anybody's kid," said Francesca Grandison.
"Justice is gonna be served baby. Justice is going to be served," said Cornelius Robinson.
Deputies were circling around the neighborhood Friday night, keeping a watchful eye. But so far, no arrests have been made.
