UPDATE: The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office has released a sketch of the man suspected of shooting and killing 19-year-old Wellington Glinton, Jr. just before midnight on December 22, 2015.



A recent Lake Worth High School graduate was fatally shot overnight at an apartment complex in suburban Lake Worth.

Just before midnight, deputies with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office responded to a shooting in the 2200 block of Shimmery Lane.

When deputies arrived they found a man shot near some bushes outside an apartment complex.

The victim, who the family identified as Wellington David Glinton, 19, was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Family members say Glinton was in his first year at Missouri Valley College.   The school's website lists him as freshman basketball player on the junior varsity team.

Detectives are at the scene investigating.
