A Gator Boardwalk shooter is threatening to keep a firearm


A 29-year-old man who was armed and shot at Daphne police near Gator Alley Boardwalk on Monday is awaiting extradition to Baldwin County, Esambia County Jail, where he will face criminal charges.

Johnny Simmons was taken to Holy Heart Hospital in Pensacola on Monday when a police officer fired a single shot and struck Simmon in the abdomen. Simmons was injured and hospitalized, where he sustained a gunshot wound. He was then transferred to a prison in Florida, where he will be charged, said Baldwin County Assistant Prosecutor Theresa Heinz.

He said Simmons is involved in a gun possession offense as a criminal. He was also charged with threatening.

Simmons was involved in a chaotic incident near the Gator Boardwalk around 3 p.m., and escalated after he began firing at officers. Images on social media showed officers pulling out their weapons while standing at a U.S. 98 crosswalk near Interstate 10. No one but Simmons was injured during the exchange.

Lt. Andre Reid, commander of the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Department’s Major Crimes Unit, said Simmons was walking around the city park with a gun before the shooting on Monday and was disturbing people climbing the board. The Gator Boardwalk, which runs through the dark D’Olive Creek, is located in Section 98, near the Hampton Inn & Suites Hotel.

Reid said police ordered Simmons to drop his weapon, but he disobeyed. One of the officers in the crosswalk urges Simmons to drop his weapon. According to Rome, Simmons began firing his rifle at the officers. It was unknown how many times Simmons fired at police.

A Daphne police officer standing at U.S. Highway 90 near Gator Boardwalk struck Simmons in the abdomen with a single shot, Reid said. No other shots were fired by police.
