The incident occurred Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at NE 210 Court, where multiple shots were fired. Cannady was shot and reportedly fled into a nearby shed.

“We just followed the blood trail from the scene and got help from witnesses,” Beauchamp said.

Beauchamp said deputies are still searching for the other suspect, 22-year-old Gerald Coleman. He is considered armed and dangerous and anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call 911 or the LSCO at 352-486-5111.
