Shooting Suspect Sought

The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office is looking for the suspect in an early Wednesday morning shooting in Fort Walton Beach.

They're looking for 31-year-old Malrik Cordale Boose, Jr. Investigators say Boose shot 21-year-old Steven Thomas Barnes just after midnight outside of a Ft. Walton Beach home on Shady Lane.

Barnes' cousin Jennifer Jackson lives in the house. She and Boose have a child together.

Deputies haven't released a motive for the shooting, but they say Barnes will recover.

They arrested the alleged getaway driver, 44-year-old Charles Wesley Banks, charging him with being an accessory to attempted murder, but authorities are still looking for Boose.

If you have any information about this case, please call the Okaloosa County Crimestoppers tips line at 863-TIPS.
