Gainesville Police Searching For Three Men Involved In Shootout Last Month

By

Last month, a three-way shootout broke out at the Rose Food Store parking lot in Gainesville.

Just after 6:30 p.m. on March 31, the men pulled out handguns and fired shots in the parking lot. Nobody was hit by any of the gunfire.

After releasing the security footage, GPD received tips allowing them to name two of the suspects: 35-year-old Artavis Mallary and 32-year-old Quinten Golston.

They are still looking to identify Mallary’s accomplice.

“Even if you’re a family member, this is a serious situation. Someone could have gotten killed or seriously hurt in this situation,” GPD Chief Inspector Jorge Campos said.
