Teen girls charged in fatal shooting

7-18-2004 Florida:

Three teenage girls face murder charges after investigators say they asked a fourth person to rob the man found dead Friday in a Dunbar yard, Fort Myers police said.

Officers are seeking the other suspect, Frederick W. Brown, 26, of Fort Myers.

Keasha R. Evans, 3045 Willard St.; Veronica S. Joyner, 3027 Second St.; and Queenetta Marshal, 2643 Blake St.; --all 16 --were arrested Saturday. Each was charged with one count of murder and one count of armed robbery.

Police say the girls asked Brown to rob the unidentified victim late Thursday but are not releasing details about the robbery and shooting until he is arrested.

Neighbors called police to 2604 St. Charles St., around 11:45 a.m. Friday after they spotted a body lying in the grass on the east side of the house. The victim was described as a black man wearing a blue-and-white shirt and black shorts. Residents told officers they heard what they believed to be gunshots late Thursday but did not call police.

Officers said Saturday they believe they know who the victim is but are awaiting fingerprint comparisons for a positive identification. His family also has not been notified, they said.

The man's death is the 11th homicide in the city this year and the sixth in Dunbar.

An autopsy on Saturday confirmed the man died from gunshot wounds, but police will not disclose details about his injuries until Brown is in custody. ..Source..
