Jacksonville, Fla. – A teenager wanted in connection with the death of a Norcross High School student last week is in custody in Florida.
Brendan Young, 18, of Lawrenceville turned himself in to the Jacksonville County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday. He was booked into the jail there shortly after 1 a.m., according to online jail records.
The Gwinnett County Police Department identified Young as a suspect in the death of 17-year-old DeAndre Henderson.
Henderson was found shot to death Wednesday afternoon on Technology Drive, about a mile from the high school. He died at a local hospital, according to police.
Investigators believe Henderson left the Norcross campus during school hours and was shot to death off campus. The police described the shooting as an isolated incident.
Investigators have not said what led them to consider Young a suspect.
Police say more charges are possible as the investigation continues.
