FORT PIERCE, Fla. - Police arrested two teenage siblings for the shooting death and home invasion of a Fort Pierce man over the weekend.
Fort Pierce police said brother and sister Naquion Jones, 18, and Keitha Daughtry, 17, both of Fort Pierce, are facing charges for the shooting death of Tremayne Dellmar, 34, of Fort Pierce.
Officers responded to a shooting Saturday in the 2100 block of Avenue N around 11:30 p.m. They found Dellmar, who had been shot multiple times, lying in a doorway of the apartment.
Other people inside the apartment at the time of the shooting said Dellmar opened the door when he heard a knock. Police said the suspects then “shoved a handgun in Dellmar’s face and demanded money,” according to a police report.
Dellmar tried to take the gun but was shot twice, in the shoulder and back, the report states. Dellmar died due to his gunshot wounds.
The suspects demanded money from the other people inside the home and then left in a blue or grey vehicle, detectives say.
Witness identified the female suspect as “Kee Kee,” Keitha Daughtry, and the man as “Fat Daddy,” Naquion Jones.
Detectives are looking for two additional suspects, whose identities are unknown.
People in the neighborhood said they were not shocked to learn two teenagers were arrested for the deadly shooting.
