Wanted Man Arrested, Charged in Boynton Beach Shooting

Tyrone Pinkney, a 23-year-old who was released from prison in September, looks like he'll be heading back. He's been arrested by police and charged in the November 9 shooting of Demetrus Sutton on Seacrest Boulevard.

According to the probable-cause affidavit, Sutton, 32, had been in an argument with two women -- Tomika Roberts and a woman named Keisha, who summoned Pinkney. He allegedly brought a silver handgun to the scene, causing Sutton to turn to leave. That's when Pinkney is said to have pulled the trigger. Sutton was taken to the Delray Medical Trauma Unit. He survived.

Pinkney, who was identified in a lineup by two witnesses, had previously served a year in prison for willfully fleeing and eluding.
