The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is investigating an early-morning homicide at a shopping plaza in suburban West Palm Beach.

The shooting occurred at 3:48 a.m. Monday near the Caribbean Choice Bakery and Restaurant located in the 2800 block of North Military Trail just south of Community Drive.

When deputies arrived, they found one man dead from a gunshot wound.  

They identified him as 28-year-old Eric Stewart.

Deputies have arrested 32-year-old Omari Fenton and charged him with first-degree murder.

At a court appearance Tuesday a judge ordered Fenton held without bond and forbid him from having any contact with the victim's family or witnesses.
