UPDATE: Escambia County Sheriff's deputies are now only searching for Christopher Leray Portis for questioning only. They were previously searching for four other men.


Five people are wanted for questioning only in regards to a homicide that happened last week in West Pensacola. Friday, a man was found dead outside an apartment complex on West Jackson Street.

Now, authorities say they want to talk to Byron Keith Floyd, Christopher Leray Portis, Christopher Darnell Hill, Jermaine Dominic Portis and Alexis Michael Martinez.

The Escambia County Sheriff's Office (ECSO) quickly informed the media that their investigation led them to believe this was a drug-related shooting. Residents told Channel 3's Jamarlo Phillips they are concerned about their safety.

ECSO says if you have any information as to the whereabouts of any of these men, contact CrimeStoppers at 433-STOP or the ECSO at 436-9620.
