One killed in drive-by shooting


RIVIERA BEACH, FL (WFLX) - One man is dead and another is injured during a drive-by shooting early Saturday morning in the 500 block of West 5th Street in Riviera Beach.

The men were walking around 3:30 a.m. when shots were fired from a passing vehicle, said Rose Anne Brown, spokeswoman for the Riviera Beach Police Department.

She said the men ran to a nearby gas station for help. They were transported to a local hospital where one of the men was pronounced dead. The other victim is expected to recover.

Family members say 23-year-old Tyrell Jackson was the man shot to death. Saturday night, family and friends gathered near the site of the shooting to remember the man.

"He was my only son and I just love him so much," said Wanda Chavers, Tyrell's mother. "He was a lovely person, everybody loved Tyrell and I'm going to miss him."

Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to contact Riviera Beach Police at 561-845-4123 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
