MIAMI, FL. (AP) - A 19-year-old suspected in the shooting death of a 7-year-old boy near Miami has surrendered to police.

Miami-Dade police spokeswoman Jennifer Capote said in a news release that investigators were interviewing Dravein Duke on Tuesday morning. She says charges are pending.

Duke was wanted in connection with the Sunday shooting of Amiere Castro, who was visiting with family in southwest Miami-Dade County for the holidays.

Police say four men pulled up in a vehicle and shot at the home around 3:30 p.m. Sunday. Driver Maxwel Trewin was arrested on Monday and charged with second-degree murder.

On Monday, a 13-year-old boy was shot in the torso near Miami. He is expected to survive. Detectives don't believe the cases are connected.
