DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - A 21-year-old man is dead following a shooting in Daytona Beach early Sunday, according to police.
The Daytona Beach Police Department said its officers were called out to the area of Wild Olive and Seabreeze Boulevard shortly before 4 a.m. for a report of a person shot. When they arrived, they found a shooting victim, later identified as D'Shawn J. McLaury. He was taken to the Halifax hospital where he was pronounced dead.
A woman who works down the street from where the shooting happened said she heard the shot fired."Straight mayhem. All this was crazy. The police started blocking things off. People started running," said Jahada Rasheed. "I did hear the shot go off. It was a single shot. And it was just mayhem. I got out of here and instantly left."
Rasheed didn't know the victim, but says it's saddening to hear of a young life taken too soon."It was just very heartbreaking. He was young, only 21. For what? What have we gained here?" she said.
According to police, McLaury had been shot once by a suspect shortly after leaving the Hookah Pub bar following an argument.
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is asked to contact Detective Collin Howell at 386-671-5257 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
