1 Dead, 1 Charged in Shooting

Article excerpt

Police charged a man with murder Saturday after two people were shot, one fatally, during an argument at a Jacksonville Waffle House restaurant, police said.

Barry Edward Carrell, 26, was being held without bail Saturday night in the Duval County jail.

Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Sgt. Mike Perry said Carrell and a female companion got into an argument Friday night with two men at the Waffle House on Duval Road near Jacksonville International Airport. Perry said Carrell produced a gun and shot both men; one, 29-year-old Dwayne Parnell, died later. The name and condition of the second victim weren't available.

Carrell and the woman were apprehended after a traffic stop a few miles away from the restaurant, Perry said, but only Carrell was charged in the homicide. Court records show he has no felony or misdemeanor record in Duval County but does have a long history of traffic violations.

The Waffle House was open for business as of Saturday afternoon, and no employees were harmed in the shooting, a manager told the Times-Union.
