4 Kids Charged In Murder of 61-Year-Old Florida Man


ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Fla. — Four teenagers have been charged in a deadly shooting last week in Pensacola.

On Friday, deputies responded to the 900-block of Massachusetts Avenue for a shooting call. Once on scene, deputies found a truck that had crashed into a power pole. Inside the truck was 61-year-old Samuel Thomley, dead from an apparent gunshot wound. A second gunshot victim was located and was taken to a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators believe the slaying was drug related — calling it “a drug rip off ending in homicide.”

Four juvenile suspects have been arrested and charged for the homicide and shooting. Javarius Cordell Henderson, 14-years-old, was charged with capital murder, Jesse L’Amos Snowden, 15-years-old, charged with capital murder and attempted homicide, Cedric Antonio Young Jr., 17-years-old, was charged with capital murder, attempted homicide, escape and resisting without violence and Calvin Barnard Williams, 17-years-old, has been charged with homicide.

“Sadly, this is another example of the type of drug related violence we battle here in Escambia County. These four arrests were made thanks to the hard work and dedication of the ECSO Investigators, who have spent tireless hours on this case,” said Sheriff Chip Simmons.
