16-Year-Old Shot and Killed at His Home in Palatka
PALATKA - The Putnam County Sheriff's Office says 16-year-old TJ Monahan is dead after he was shot in a Palatka neighborhood.
Sheriff's deputies haven't made any arrests but they say they have interviewed a person of interest.
They say the shooting happened on Locust Avenue on Sunday, but the neighbor who leant a man her phone to call 911 says she saw the teen's dead body, but never heard a gun go off - "he's just a nice, nice young man and I have no idea who would do that to him on a Sunday afternoon in [broad] daylight and that's what's so shocking that I couldn't help him."
The neighbor says the teen lived at the house with his mother...and the two had only been there for about 6 months.
