Two Belle Glade men are accused of shooting at least 18 rounds into homes and cars in a Pahokee neighborhood last month, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.
Kevious Walker and Tony Huggins, both 20, were arrested on July 7 and 8, respectfully, in connection to a previous shooting with no reported injuries, a probable-cause affidavit said. In a brief court hearing on July 9, a judge set Huggins bond at $160,000. At Walker’s court date on July 11, a judge set his bond at $104,000. They both remained in jail as of Thursday morning.

At about 10 p.m. June 28, a shooting was reported on Eisenhower Drive, where documented gang members are known to live, the affidavit said. Deputies found a residence on Eisenhower as the original crime scene and a second one on Jefferson Avenue, where several casings were found on the roadway. Jefferson and Eisenhower are parallel to each other with houses and a grassy area between them.
Deputies found 21 casings in total in the crime scenes, the affidavit said. Fifteen 7.62 casings and three 9mm casings were in the grassy area between Eisenhower and Jefferson. On the roadway, three .40-caliber casings were found but it wasn’t known if they were related to the recent shootings.
A witness said she was inside her home when she heard several gunshots outside. She went outside because her brother was just there, but he was found unharmed. She spotted Huggins shooting a large gun toward the back of her home and Walker shooting a small gun. They ran toward Jefferson and got into a small four-door vehicle, according to the affidavit.
The vehicle of the witness’s mother was hit six times from behind, the affidavit said. Another nearby vehicle was also hit six times.
Another nearby resident said she was inside her home with her 13-year-old granddaughter when they heard the shots, the affidavit said. They dropped to the floor and called 911 when the gunfire stopped. Her bedroom window facing the back yard and the back of her house was shot.
