Two suspects in custody in girl's shooting death

Manatee County deputies now have both suspects in a Manatee County shooting that left a 17-year-old girl dead.
Late last night, deputies arrested one man involved in Teria'le Rawls' death in a movie theater parking lot. Jasper Dudley, 19, of Bradenton was arrested.
Tuesday morning Frank Brice, 19, of Palmetto, who is also suspected in the shooting turned himself in.
Rawls was shot about 2 a.m. Monday in a parking lot near the Royal Palms Theater in Oneco, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies said the shooting did not involve the theater and the large parking lot is a popular gathering spot for young people.
Rawls, a high school junior and member of the cheerleading squad, was with a group of people when an argument broke out and gunfire followed.
Friends loaded her up in a car and tried to rush her to the hospital themselves, but she died on the way.
