FORT PIERCE, Fla. - FORT PIERCE — Raynol Wilson left his North 21st Street apartment to hang out with some friends Sunday night, his mother said.
Minutes later, Tycie Wilson said she heard a noise that sounded like fireworks. Then, her nephew came to the door and explained it was not fireworks; it was gunfire that had struck her 16-year-old son Raynol.
"They just jumped out of their car and shot him," Wilson said witnesses told her about the crime.
She ran a block south of their home, to the 1000 block of Avenue I, and found Raynol laying on a sidewalk.
"His eyes were open, but he wasn't talking," said Wilson, describing the moments before an ambulance took Raynol away.
Raynol was pronounced dead when he arrived at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center & Heart Institute in Fort Pierce.
Fort Pierce police detectives Monday were continuing the investigation. No detailed description of the gunmen was available.
