A press release from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded to a double shooting following a fight in the 500 block of N. Redwood Drive in Lake Park a little after midnight Wednesday.
A man was taken to a hospital in the area for treatment of his injuries, while another man, who deputies located in West Palm Beach, died from his injuries, the release says.
