Suspects identified in girl's shooting death

Manatee County investigators have identified two men they accuse of fatally shooting a 17-year-old girl.
 
Jasper Dudley of Bradenton and Frank Brice of Palmetto, both 19, are wanted in the shooting of Teria’le Rawls.
 
Rawls, a Riverview High School student involved in cheerleading, was shot during an altercation in a parking lot near a Manatee County theater Monday.
 
The shooting occurred about 2 a.m. near the Royal Palm Theater in Oneco. According to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office, the shooting did not involve the theater and the large parking lot is a popular gathering spot for young people. 
 
The group involved in the altercation ranged in age from 15 to 22, according to witnesses.
 
Rawls was rushed to a Sarasota hospital after the driver of the car she was in was stopped by a state trooper for erratic driving.
