Suspect's brother charged in Army veteran's death

St. Petersburg, Florida -- Thursday night, St. Pete Police detectives charged a 16-year-old boy with the first degree murder of a 20-year Army veteran.

Two weeks ago, police arrested the teen's brother, Shirune Green, who they believed at the time was responsible for Floyd Lassiter's death. However, detectives now believe it was Shirune's brother who actually fired the shots from a 9mm handgun.

Lassiter was shot and killed on May 10 when he confronted two people who were trying to steal his car.

The teen is already in jail on unrelated charges.
