After deputies arrived at the scene, detectives were able to piece information from interviews and video of the fight and shooting posted on social media sites.

Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Wallace, and the 17-year-old was located in Marion County. MCSO attempted to make contact, when Wallace fled on foot. He was apprehended quickly around midnight on Sept. 1 and was found to be in possession of a firearm - a firearm that was reported stolen in Marion County.
