FORT MYERS, Fla. - Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott has announced the arrest of 18 year old high school student Dalvon Lawrence in connection with the shooting death of Friedich Timmerman back on March 14th.

Lawrence is being charged with Manslaughter with a firearm for shooting and killing Timmerman, who was on his way home, near the intersection of Summerlin Road and Maple Drive.  

Sheriff Mike Scott says he believe the shooting to be random, saying "it could have been any of us."

Lawrence was arrested Thursday at Cypress Lake High School. Deputies connected him to the shooting when they stopped him in April as he was fleeing from deputies in the same neighborhood. In the incident, he had a gun in his pocket.

After intensive investigation, ballistics matched bullets in Lawrence's gun to the bullet that killed Timmerman.
