Police are investigating a fatal shooting Friday night and the crash of a minivan nearby. Derek Johnson, 19, died after being taken to a hospital after the 8:27 p.m. shooting on the 2100 block of Glynwood Drive, reported in a previous News Brief item.

“He had been in a parked car with other individuals when a minivan drove by and someone in it began firing at the car,” police say. “The minivan sped away and the driver of the car drove Johnson for treatment.”

Shortly after, a minivan similar to the one described in the shooting was located wrecked on the northbound entrance ramp to the Truman from Derenne Avenue.

Thelron Gregory Winbush Jr., 20, was arrested and charged with murder. A second suspect, Za’Kee Jaquan Robinson, 19, of Thunderbolt, turned himself in to police.
