SUBURBAN LAKE WORTH BEACH, Fla. -- Deputies with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office responded to a shooting in the 4300 block of Cambridge St. in unincorporated Lake Worth Beach on Sunday at 11 a.m.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they found a man suffering from at least one gunshot wound. A short distance away, law enforcement found another man suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg.

Both men were transported to the hospital.

One of the men died and was identified Monday as 38-year-old Alberto Hernandez.

According to PBSO, an altercation led to the gunfire.

The sheriff's office says as a result of its investigation deputies have arrested 19-year-old James Bryant and charged him with the killing as well as using a firearm during a felony.

PBSO said he will not make a first appearance in court Monday because he's being treated for injuries at a hospital.
