Man arrested for gunning down friend in Ft. Pierce

FORT PIERCE, FL (WFLX) - Police say a man, shot several times including in the face, was gunned down by his own friend.

Eighteen-year-old Derrick Culver was arrested Monday for shooting his buddy, 19-year-old Michael Rakestraw. Rakestraw was found last Thursday in Fort Pierce shot several times.

Even though Rakestraw couldn't talk, deputies were able to go through the alphabet until he could nod at the initials of his shooter -- D-C.

Rakestraw is in critical condition.
