WELLINGTON, Fla. (AP) _ A Wellington birthday party turned deadly when one guest shot another guest twice in the chest.
The victim, 18-year-old Jason Payne, died at the scene yesterday. The suspect, 19-year-old William Wilkerson, tried to flee, but authorities caught up with him. He has been charged with murder.
A deputy was patrolling the area when he heard gunshots and decided to investigate. He found the suspect running from the apartment complex.
