MARIANNA, Fla. (WTXL) — The Marianna Police Department says two juveniles have been arrested and charged for the shooting on Friday, June 25, 2021.

According to MPD, at approximately 9:56 p.m., an officer with the Marianna Police Department saw a blue car pass under the overpass on Borden Street at a high rate of speed.

The officer said the car crossed into oncoming traffic, corrected itself and continued northbound on Borden Street. Based on the traffic violations, officers conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle.

While on the traffic stop with the vehicle, Marianna Police Department Communications received a call for service near the McClane Center, located on Clay Street, the report said.
