WINTER HAVEN, Fla. — Deputies in Polk County are searching for a gunman after a teenager was shot to death.
Investigators said a 15-year-old was found shot around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday in a driveway on St. Paul Drive in Winter Haven.
Deputies are asking the public for help to find his killer.
“The 15-year-old black male is apparently a gang member, and we’re researching, he may have been formally documented as a gang member just yesterday,” said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.
The sheriff’s office is not releasing the teenager’s name until the family has been notified.
There is a $5,000 reward being offered for any information that leads to an arrest.
