Pasco County detectives have made another arrest in a deadly shooting that happened at a Hudson apartment complex this week.

One person was killed at the Ridgestone Apartments on Wednesday when shots were fired during a drug deal, according to the sheriff’s office. Deputies arrested 21-year-old Anthony Blount the next day for second-degree murder and attempted murder.

Detectives have now also arrested Blount’s girlfriend, 19-year-old Alexas Gregas, for third-degree murder and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

According to the sheriff’s office, Gregas arrived to the drug deal on Wednesday in a red Mitsubishi Outlander. A witness spotted her pass a handgun to Blount through the window of her SUV then saw her wait as a lookout.

When Jamarquez Codling and Kiyondrea Redfield tried to rob Blount, deputies say Gregas rammed her SUV into the side of Blount’s Dodge Durango. Codling and Redfield then got out of the Durango and ran to the white Nissan they showed up in, driven by Ariell Felder. 

Investigators say Gregas rammed her Outlander into the Nissan before leaving the scene.

According to detectives, Blount then got out of his Durango and started chasing the men, firing at least 13 rounds into the Nissan. Felder was hit in the back of the head and was in critical condition as of Thursday.

Codling got out of the car, according to deputies, and started shooting a handgun in Blount’s direction. At some point during the incident, Codling was shot and was later pronounced dead. 

The sheriff’s office says Redfield is still on the run. They have issued a warrant for his arrest for second-degree murder and felony possession of marijuana. Anyone who knows where he is should call 911 immediately.
