UPDATE: 8/26/2022 - Christian Venisee was initially wanted for second-degree murder, tampering with evidence, and shooting into an unoccupied dwelling. However, court records show the murder charge was later dropped after neither victim was found to have been shot by Venisee. The State Attorney’s Office later issued a ‘Nolle Preosequi’ on the second-degree murder charge, which officially stated there was no evidence found that Venissee committed either murder.

On June 27, 2022, Venisee, pleaded no contest to shooting into a building, tampering with evidence, and possession of a firearm by a delinquent. Due to the nature of the crime, Venisee is now 16 and serving a two-year sentence within the Florida Department of Corrections.
