Police: One of two sought in shooting no longer a suspect


UPDATE, Monday, 2 p.m.: Fort Pierce police say one of two men sought in a shooting on Sunday morning has turned himself in.

The man, wearing a green jacket and white shirt in a surveillance photo released by police, came to the Fort Pierce police on his own after seeing himself in news reports. He was questioned by detectives and released. He is not considered a suspect in the shooting.

Police are still searching for a man in a second photo, wanting him for questioning.

ORIGINAL STORY: The Fort Pierce Police Department released surveillance images of two men possibly connected to a double shooting Sunday morning.

Two people were injured in the shooting, which happened at about 2 a.m. outside a Chinese restaurant on North 25th Street near Avenue D, according to police.

A 27-year-old woman was shot in the arm and a 23-year-old man was shot in the back. They were taken to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center.

Two men were caught on surveillance video in the area. They are considered “persons of interest,” not suspects at this time, said Ed Cunningham, spokesman for the police department.

Anyone with information about the two men is asked to call 911.
