A 13-year-old has died and two of his friends face charges in connection to a shooting outside of a Flamingo Road residence Sunday.
Officers responded to a shooting call at 12:08 p.m. where 13-year-old Akeem Pugh was found wounded next to an unused car parked at a home.
Officers administered aid until emergency officials arrived. Pugh was taken to Prisma Health Tuomey, where he was pronounced dead.
Their names are not being released because of their ages. Both are being held at a state Department of Juvenile Justice facility.
Officers are continuing to investigate.
Notification of family was made by the Sumter County Coroner’s Office.
An autopsy is scheduled for this week.
