7 Year old Boy Killed in Drive By Shooting ***Enhanced Reward $10,000***
February 19, 2018

The 7-year-old boy shot and killed Sunday night was playing in a Durkeeville front yard when someone in an SUV stopped and opened fire. According to Jacksonville's sheriff, several adults -- some of them with criminal histories who were drinking and smoking marijuana -- returned gunfire.

Police identified the boy as Tashawn Gallon, who died at the hospital. Tashawn's aunt told News4Jax he was a first-grader at S.P. Livingston Elementary School.

Sheriff Williams said 23-year-old Dominique Holcomb, who was also shot, fled the scene before police arrived, but made his way to UF Health Jacksonville. He was treated and released, but later charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He also had outstanding arrest warrants for aggravated assault and domestic battery.

Officers responded to the shooting on Mount Herman Street near Third Street around 9:13 p.m. Sunday after both a ShotSpotter indication of gunfire and a 911 call from the home. Detectives said it's believed the gunfire came from a small, dark-colored SUV, possibly a gray Toyota. Williams said one of the witnesses reported that at least one of the adults in the yard grabbed a gun to return fire.

Officers don't believe the child was the intended target in the drive-by shooting. Williams said that among the people in the yard at the time were multiple people with felony convictions, and at least one of them has an active gang affiliation.

Williams said Holcomb was among those who witnessed the shooting but are not cooperating with the investigation.

Police said there were several more people in the house at the time of the shooting, but none of them were hit by the gunfire. Williams said Tashawn was the nephew of the homeowner.
