Still no charges in Marianna deadly shooting

MARIANNA, Fla. - The gunman in Saturday night's deadly shooting at a Marianna apartment may not face any charges. The state attorney's office has identified the alleged shooter as a juvenile who may have a self-defense or "defense of others" claim.
 
Marianna Police believe the shooting started with a domestic violence incident inside a unit at the Three Rivers Apartments on Carters Mill Road.
 
Officers said they were initially called to help with crowd control around 8:20 p.m. Saturday so emergency medical personnel could take Clifford Johnson, 46, to the Jackson County Hospital. Staff then notified police Johnson had been shot and died from his injuries.
 
Officers were back at the complex Monday afternoon to finish interviewing witnesses and collect video inside the apartment.
 
"We're looking at all the witness statements, everybody. The shooter is being cooperative. We're going over all the evidence, the physical evidence and awaiting results from the autopsy. We've been in contact with the state attorney's office," Police Chief Hayes Baggett said.
 
No one will be charged until investigators determine whether or not the shooter's claim is valid.
