A Wewahitchka man was arrested this week on charges stemming from a shooting last month.

Dakota Floyd Ake, 21, of Wewahitchka was arrested by investigators with the Gulf County Sheriff’s Office, according to Sheriff Mike Harrison.

Ake’s arrest follows the shooting of Peter Keukelaar, 28, of Bay County during a social gathering at Ake’s residence Sept. 22.

Keukelaar suffered a gunshot wound to the chest with life-threatening injuries.

When deputies arrived at the scene near Gulf Coast Electric Cooperative, they were told Keukelaar was being rushed to the hospital by a friend who witnessed the shooting.

He was transported to Bay Medical Center by EMS where he underwent surgery.

Investigators learned Keukelaar was shot with a shotgun by Ake.
