17-year old Florida boy killed and another teen wounded

In West Palm Beach, Florida, 17-year old Jake Duchene was shot in the neck and killed and another teen injured in the leg after a drug deal gone bad.

A candlelight vigil was held to remember the boy.

"Jake was naive and a kid. He just turned 17. I don't think he had any idea in the world what this was about. That's not Jake. That's not how we live and not how we raised our kids. He had no idea what these people are capable of," said Jake's aunt, Jackie Egerton
