On Thursday, August 10, at 3:34 pm, GPD received reports of shots fired in the area of 1900 Southeast 4th Street.
Police arrived on the scene at Woodland Park apartments to find a juvenile victim who had been shot. The victim was transported to Shands, where he later died from his injuries.
Police responded by blocking off Southeast 19th Place and Southeast 1st Terrace.
Officers found shell casings at the scene of the crime. Police audio indicates the victim was shot near building 9. Police say they don't know if the teen was shot inside or outside of the building. GPD talked to witnesses at a nearby apartment.
A brief police audio transcription has been included.
Update: On Aug 17, D’Angelo Latrell Deed was arrested and charged with one count of murder and another count of robbery for his role in the shooting. According to GPD this is still an open investigation.
Update 2: As of September 12, 2023, this is still an open investigation. A statement from the clerk of court was received from GPD records.
"Releasing information contained in the mittimus would be detrimental to this investigation. The investigation in this case is ongoing, and disclosure of the information contained in the mittimus would compromise the investigation."
