Shooting victim flown to trauma center

Posted
OKEECHOBEE -- Three teenagers have been arrested and charged in connection with  a shooting that left another juvenile injured.
 
The  Okeecobee County Sheriff's Office  released the following information:
 
On Friday, July 22, the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office responded to several 911 calls leading them to the 3300 block of NW Third Street in the DeBerry Subdivision of Okeechobee for a shooting involving at least one juvenile victim.
 
OCSO Communications Division provided patrol deputies with a description of the vehicle involved from eyewitnesses on the scene who had called 911.
 
Deputies located the possible vehicle as it turned into Kings Mobile Home Park, and into a residence where the three sole occupants of the vehicle jumped out and began to flee on foot when ordered to stop by a uniformed deputy.
 
The deputy closest to the suspect's car immediately took the driver into custody. A second occupant was taken into custody a short time later after being found within the perimeter.
 
As the case developed, the location of the third person that fled the car was discovered back at a trailer within Kings Mobile Home Park. That person was located and arrested without incident.
 
A juvenile victim received non-life-threatening injuries and was flown  to a trauma center. A second juvenile victim was not injured.
 
J’Mari Mitchell, 16, was arrested and charged with accessory after the fact/attempted murder.
 
Isaac Jones, 16, was arrested and charged with  two counts of attempted murder.
 
Terrace Hill, 17, was also arrested and charged with two counts of attempted murder.
