Manhunt for murder suspect ends with arrest

The Panama City Police Department has taken into custody the suspect wanted in a shooting death at a local apartment complex today.

Officers with the department were dispatched to Andrews Place Apartments in the 1900 block of Frankford Avenue around 11:30 a.m. today. Upon arrival, officers found a male suffering from gunshot wounds in the breezeway of an apartment building. The male victim later died from his wounds at a local hospital.

Detectives with the department identified Andre Demmoy Levy, 31, as a suspect in the shooting, but he had left the scene.

A multi-jurisdictional search with officers from the Panama City Police Department, the Bay County Sheriff’s Office, the Panama City Beach Police Department and the US Marshals Service ended with Levy being taken into custody in the unincorporated areas on Panama City Beach approximately two hours after the shooting was first reported.

The resources of the Bay Real Time Operations Center (BAYROC) were instrumental in the location and capture of Levy. He is being booked into the Bay County Jail.

Anyone with information in this case is asked to call the Panama City Police Department at 850-872-3100, or they can report tips anonymously via smartphone by downloading the “Panama City PD” Tip411 app from the iOS or Google Play stores.
