Pensacola man indicted on murder, assault charges in Brownsville shooting death
A grand jury has indicted a Pensacola man on charges in connection with a homicide last month in Brownsville, where authorities say a man was shot in his face at close range by a shotgun.
Gregory Clark, 56, has been indicted on charges of first-degree murder and aggravated assault by threat with a firearm, according to State Attorney Bill Eddins.
Clark is accused of killing Darryl Penn, who was a passenger inside a car that was being driven by Clark's wife at the time of shooting, according to Eddins.
Escambia County Sheriff’s Office deputies on Sept. 20 found Penn slumped in the passenger seat of a Hyundai Elantra parked in front of Trisha’s One Stop convenience store at Green Street and Mobile Highway, according to Clark's arrest report. Penn appeared to have been shot in the face.
Clark’s wife later told investigators that her husband approached her car when she stopped at the intersection of Shoemaker Street and Mobile Highway and a confrontation ensued.
The wife said that Clark shot Penn in the face with a shotgun and she then took off and drove down Mobile Highway before parking four blocks away at Trisha's One Stop. She then got out of the Hyundai and called for help.
Clark is scheduled to appear in court for an Oct. 11 arraignment, according to Eddins.
