“Sometimes they go faster than you think, sometimes slower,” said Sims.

Butler is charged with shooting and killing Everett Gant in July of last year in Port St. Joe.

Gant approached Butler’s Pine Ridge apartment after Butler had been accused of using racial slurs directed at children in the apartment complex. Butler shot Gant between the eyes with a .22 rifle and left him bleeding on the doorstep before calling 911 and sitting back down to finish his dinner.

He expressed inconvenience at being arrested for shooting a “(racial epithet),” according to the arresting affidavit.

Six weeks after the shooting Gant passed away from the injuries.
