The Escambia County Sheriff's Office (ECSO) announced Friday that they have arrested a man wanted in connection with a homicide in Myrtle Grove.

ECSO deputies had been searching for 22-year-old Lyntonio De'Shawn Quinn since Tuesday after deputies responded to a call that day of a shooting victim on 48th Avenue near Elsa Avenue.

ECSO announced Friday that Quinn was arrested for homicide – murder, home-invasion robbery, and home invasion with a firearm.

Quinn is believed to be one of four people to have committed what appeared to be a drug-related home invasion, according to ECSO investigators.

Deputies said three other people have been previously detained for questioning.
