One dead in Panama City Beach shooting

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. - Panama City Beach Police are investigating a deadly shooting which happened in the parking lot of the Shoppes at Edgewater Sunday night.

As of 11:00 p.m. Sunday, Chief Drew Whitman said there was a county wide manhunt for the suspected male shooter. He wasn't able to provide a clear description of the man or the car he left the area in.

Whitman said a fight between the suspect and the victim in the shopping center likely led to the shooting. The victim was taken to a local hospital with several gunshot wounds but later died from his injuries.

Officers spent a good portion of the night interviewing multiple witnesses to the shooting.
