PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Port St. Lucie police on Thursday named the suspect in a fatal shooting of a 20-year-old man during a meeting at the Gatlin Commons Business Center's parking lot Wednesday night.

Alan Williams III, 20, is wanted on an active arrest warrant of murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, police said.

Williams fled on foot and is wanted. The red Jeep that Williams arrived in, driven by a second individual, also fled the area but has since been recovered by detectives unoccupied earlier Thursday morning.

At 6:57 p.m. Wednesday, police responded to Southwest Aledo Lane and Southwest Brigantine Place, east of Interstate 95 about a shooting.

The 20-year-old driver and a woman arrived in their vehicle to meet with two known individuals in another vehicle in a parking lot, police said in a post on Facebook.

The shooter exited the Cherokee and entered the victim's vehicle, police said. The victim drove away as the gunman shot the driver from inside the vehicle.
