Teen wanted in Friday shooting off Parris Island Gateway (Update: Conviction)

(Updates at the bottom.)

Beaufort Police are searching for a 16-year-old youth who allegedly fired shots at two men leaving the Ambrose Run apartments.

Mykel Deyshawn Johnson is described as 5 feet, 3 inches and weighs some 130 pounds.

Multiple briefs abound, but I'll point you to the one at The Island Packet for a bit more (read that here).

A post from the Beaufort Police Department asked that, "If sighted please call 911 and report his location, clothing description and direction of travel. If you have information or tips related to Johnson you can call the Tip Line at 322-7958. You can remain anonymous."
