PANAMA CITY — Two Panama City teenagers have been extradited to Dothan, Alabama, to face capital murder charges.
Davaciera Booth, 18, and an unnamed girl were among four people wanted in connection to what detectives in Alabama believe was a robbery gone awry.
Dothan Police Department officers were called at 6:30 a.m. July 14 to Morgan Street and Westmead Street where a man was found lying on the side of the road, according to a statement from Dothan Police.
The man, identified as Gabriel Raynaldo Johnson, 34, of Ashford, Alabama, was shot, Lt. Ronald Hall of the Dothan Police Department confirmed to The News Herald on Tuesday.
"These individuals conspired together to rob Mr. Johnson of money he was believed to be in possession of and it ultimately cost him his life," according to the statement.
Investigators did not know how Johnson was acquainted with those accused of killing him, Hall said.
"We don't think it's going to be a random (incident)," he said. "There may have been an association with one or two of the suspects." But, Hall said, he did not know which suspect or suspects.
Investigators also believe there might have been more than one gun involved, he said.
"Investigators and Patrol Officers worked into the late-night hours (that) night locating and collecting surveillance video, conducting numerous interviews, and executing numerous search warrants," the statement says.
Dothan residents Dialan Z. Beard and Rodgrick J. Holmes, both 18, were arrested in Dothan and, the day after Johnson's body was found, Booth and the younger teen were arrested in Bay County.
Johnson's death was the seventh homicide this year in Dothan, Hall said.
"We would like to extend our appreciation to Sheriff Tommy Ford and the Bay County ... Sheriff’s Department for their assistance in this investigation," the Dothan Police Department statement says.
