Grief Grips Sanford as 16-Year-Old Victim of Fatal Shooting Identified

The Sanford police are seeking assistance from the public in apprehending a suspect involved in a fatal shooting at a local apartment complex on Sunday evening, which claimed the life of a teenager.

Around 6 p.m. on Sunday, Sanford police responded to a 911 call reporting a shooting at the Stratford Pointe Apartments on Old England Loop.

Upon arrival, they discovered 16-year-old Jamarcus Parker suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Parker was rushed to a nearby hospital but unfortunately succumbed to his injuries.

According to investigators, Parker was socializing with a group of friends in the apartment complex parking lot before the incident occurred.
