The hunt is on for Reece Thomas James Sturgis, he is quite the character, and starting off big. At the tender age of 18 he stands accused of 2nd Degree Murder, Attempted 2nd Degree Murder, FTA Criminal Use of Personal ID, Possession of Cannabis, Resist without Violence.
I can guess that the failure to appear (FTA) charges are not connected with his latest escapade. But they certainly will play a role when this young man is brought to justice.
If much greater concern is the 2nd Degree Murder, and Attempted 2nd Degree Murder. Crime Stoppers has this to say:
On May 16, 2014, Reece Sturgis was involved in a car-to-car shooting in Arcadia, Florida where two victims were shot multiple times. One victim was deceased and the other victim was critically wounded.
The suspect vehicle was described as a dark colored Chevrolet Impala. Sturgis is described as: 5″10″, 140lbs, black hair, brown eyes.
Sturgis has active felony warrants for 2nd Degree Murder, Attempted 2nd Degree Murder, FTA Criminal Use of Personal ID, Possession of Cannabis, Resist without Violence.
But what actually happened? For that, I went digging online:
Deputies say 15-year-old Melvin Hearns was killed when someone opened fire on the vehicle he was riding in. The driver lost control, ran over a speed limit sign and slammed into a fence.
Another victim, 19-year-old Deandre Williams was shot in the leg.
Other than this information little has been published concerning the exact location in Arcadia, Florida, or time of day that the killing happened.
