St. Lucie County Sheriff's detectives have arrested a man and a woman for attempted felony murder and evidence tampering/destruction in a Wednesday night shooting in the Silver Lake Estates area of unincorporated St. Lucie County, according to Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.
"We arrested Terence Antonio Tumblin, 25 (DOB 3/18/1987), and his girlfriend Jamie L. Anderson, 23 (DOB 12/3/1988), both of 911 Fra-Mar Place, Fort Pierce on four counts each of attempted felony murder, and one count each of evidence tampering/destruction," Sheriff Mascara said. "In addition, Terence Antonio Tumblin is charged with possession of a weapon by a convicted Florida felon."
Both are being held at the St. Lucie County jail. Tumblin's bond is $138,750. Anderson's bond is $123,750 . Attempted felony murder is a first-degree felony. The other charges are third-degree felonies.
The 10:30 p.m. Wednesday incident took place on Fra-Mar Place east of Oleander Avenue, north of Farmer's Market Road and south of King Orange Drive, west of U.S.1, Sheriff Mascara said. The victims were David Fernandez, 20 (DOB 9/14/1991), Kayla Smith 19 (DOB 3/20/1993), Robert Potter and Rachle Atkinson.
A dispute over a parking space took place in the parking lot of 700 Fra-Mar Place in which Tumblin shot Fernandez and Smith. They drove themselves to a hospital where deputies interviewed them.
Investigators learned details from witnesses, and area law officers received those details from 9-1-1 dispatchers.
Shortly after 2:30 this morning, Port St. Lucie Police Officers spotted the wanted vehicle, a red Dodge Durango, at Woodstork Park, 1957 S.E. Hillmoor Drive, Port St. Lucie, and detained Tumblin and Anderson.
Deputies recovered from a trash can in the park evidence the couple tried to dispose of, consisting of several items of clothing and a car seat cover.
Detectives interviewed the couple and took them to jail this afternoon.
The investigation is continuing, Sheriff Mascara said.
