Earlier this evening we had posted that a person was shot and another person was in custody after a shooting on Northside Dr W. In Lake Wales (click here for that article One Person Shot & One Person In Custody After Lake Wales Shooting). We have now learned that the person who was shot has succumbed to his injuries. The Polk County Sheriff’s Office has not officially released the persons name at this time.

According to Carrie Horstman, public information officer, with the PCSO the shooter and the person shot knew each other. It’s unknown if a dispute occurred or something else that started the incident. It is not known if the person shot and killed was a victim or an assailant and the same can be said for the person who did the shooting

This is an ongoing situation and we will update as more information is released.
