A man was shot in the chin in Palm Coast’s P-Section, on Pine Hill Lane, early Sunday morning at the end of what had reportedly been a loud party. The shooter is still at large.

The victim, Johnnie Thomas Jr., 19, of Bunnell, went with friends to Florida Hospital Flagler. This is the same Johnnie Thomas who, last April, was arrested for firing a .32-caliber gun at Ralph Carter Park in Palm Coast, when two groups of teens got into a brawl, and with dozens of children nearby. Thomas has been in and out of jail five times in the last five years, most recently last August on a trespass after warning charge.

The shooting reportedly took place at 25A Pine Hill Lane at around 3 a.m. Numerous cars had been seen at the property until that time. The cars left the property after the shooting. The shooter was seen pulling the trigger on the victim, but the shooter’s identity is not known at this time, either.

The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office established a crime scene that was still active Sunday. Three or four shell casings were recovered at the entrance to the house.

The sheriff’s office later this morning released the following details: a birthday party with as many as 75-100 people in attendance was being held at the property, when several gunshots were heard outside in front of the residence.

Thomas was treated and later released. Investigators have just completed interviewing a number of witnesses who were at 25A Pine Hill Lane when the incident occurred and wish to speak to anyone else that may have been at the party.

“This was a reckless act of violence which endangered the lives of many. Incidents such as this need to stop before innocent lives are lost,” Flagler County Sheriff Jim Manfre said in the release.

Anyone with information that may assist investigators in this case is asked to contact Detective Annie Conrad of the Persons Crimes Unit at 386-586-4844 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-277-TIPS (8477). Callers may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward up to $1,000.

    And to think, just 20 years ago Calm Post was a beautiful retirement community. I’m glad I got out. The place has turned into a real shit hole. Pardon my French; there are some things unworthy of a euphemism.

    I got a month-to-month lease in the P-section back in early 2005. Without getting into too much detail, my experience was so awful, I packed my stuff and moved after 2 weeks. Back then it really wasn’t that bad… now it’s a complete crapshoot. I’m sorry if that offends anyone currently living there but it’s the truth. P an R sections are by far the worst in Palm Coast. B section is following just behind…

    Perhaps places like the VFW, or Knights of Columbus could allow these young people to use their facilities so they can accommodate such a large crowd, and noise concern.100 people in a small duplex is no place to have a party. These young people need somewhere to go on Weekend nites, and these clubs would be great so they can play their music and have fun.

    This is ridiculous, the ghetto can inhabit even the retirement community. Shootings are all over even in Palm Coast. Guess what an old freaking lady drove through the doors of the publix down the street and did more damage I don’t see all the old idiots barking complaints about a persons age and ability to drive have anything in common. If you ask me, and I have lived here for a LONG time, having the ghetto in Palm Coast is no worse then having the whole population of Russia and ALL the dying residents of New York living here! If you dont like where u live MOVE its not that difficult nobody is holding u back! #sick of ppl bitching..don’t cry about it be about it.

      The local red-necks were right all along.
      This exodus from up north was going to ruin this town.
      Boy did it ever…..

      Time to go, this place is crime-ridden and corrupt as can be.

      How about you keep the ‘ghetto” at your house junior. I’ll keep the outstanding “older” residents near me.
