Brendon Young of Lawrenceville is facing charges of murder and aggravated assault in the death of 17-year-old DeAndre Henderson, Gwinnett police spokeswoman Hideshi Valle said. The teenager surrendered at the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office in Florida and is awaiting extradition to Georgia, Valle added. Police did not say what Young was doing in Florida.
The victim, who was a student at Norcross High School, had just left campus around noon Wednesday, during school hours, and was on Technology Parkway when he was shot at least once, police said. He was taken to a hospital, where he died hours later.
