Investigators later found a handgun and marijuana on the roof of one of the apartment buildings, which they believe was done in an attempt to hide them. It was also reported Dixon's wound was to his leg, and the other victim was wounded in his calf.

Curtis Dixon Jr. 22, of Quincy, died Nov. 17 at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital following a shooting that same day at 2425 Mission Road in Tallahassee.

Tallahassee police officers described the incident, which involved two victims, as a drug deal gone bad. The second victim, whose identity has not been released, was listed in stable condition last night at TMH.

Officers would not say, according to published reports, whether weapons were found or if the incident was a shootout between the two men.

Gretchen Everhart and Godby High schools were under lock down during the investigation, and the entrance to nearby Mission Hills Apartments was closed while investigators worked at the crime scene. Children at Riley Elementary School who live at the apartments were also held on campus until TPD investigators opened the entrance to the complex.

The incident is still under investigation.

Dixon was arrested in 2005 in connection with a string of burglaries in Gadsden County.
