Associated Press Release

HOLLY HILL, Fla. (AP) -- Sheriff's officials say there was a mix up in identifying a man who was fatally shot outside a central Florida bar.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (http://bit.ly/15jDohF ) reports 28-year-old Jerriell LeSane died in the shooting early Saturday in Holly Hill. But the victim was actually his twin brother Terrell LeSane.

The twins' mother, Cathy Bostic says her daughter was at the hospital Saturday and identified the body as "Jerriell." Sheriff's officials, however, say she identified the victim as "Terrell." The identity was confirmed during the autopsy.

Sheriff's spokesman Gary Davidson says a fight broke out at the bar at closing time. Deputies found the body in the parking lot. They're asking anyone with information about the shooting to call authorities.
