Early March 21, Manatee County sheriff's deputies responded to shots fired in the 4300 block of Eighth Street Court East.
Nicolette Johnson, 24, was found laying in a driveway with multiple gunshot wounds when deputies arrived. He was pronounced dead by paramedics at the scene.
Kyle Dewayne Stackhouse, 27, was identified two days later as the suspect in the shooting after detectives received a Crimestoppers tip and obtained a warrant for his arrest.
