Ft. Pierce teen shooting possibly gang related

FORT PIERCE, FL (WFLX) - Authorities are investigating whether the homicide of a Fort Pierce teen was gang related.

Detectives think 17-year-old Davontae Dukes was not involved in a gang, but they suspect a family member of his may have been.

Authorities say the 15-year-old boy, who was arrested for the shooting, may have recognized Dukes and shot and killed him Saturday.

Now, the sheriff's department has increased patrols to target streets where teens hang out.
