Additional suspects believed to be involved, one arrest made for possession of a firearm by convicted felon.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY -- The fatal shooting on Sept. 20 of St. Lucie County resident, Dwight Snaith, resulted in a search warrant at the residence where the incident occurred.

Detectives were searching for evidence of the homicide and found a large quantity of drugs.

Upon service of the search warrant, investigators found the following items; 2 lb. 6oz of marijuana, Estimated street value is $7,600; Approximately 30 ounces of cocaine and crack cocaine. Estimated street value is $35,000; 10 grams of clonazepan pills, (90) pills. Estimated street value $1,000; $658 dollars in cash; a Keltec .380 pistol which was confirmed as stolen; a Highpoint 9 mm pistol; a Davis .380 pistol; and a Nefgardner .22 revolver.

The second subject, Tyrell Bennett, who was also shot Friday afternoon, was released from Lawnwood on Saturday. Detectives are continuing their investigation but they now believe that there were additional shooters and it is unclear at this time if Bennett was involved in the shooting or a victim of crossfire.

Further, initial reports noted that Mr. Bennett and Mr. Snaith were in an argument over a woman but detectives now feel that additional subjects may have been involved. The reported dispute may have been related to drugs or gambling and Bennett's specific involvement remains under investigation.

Witnesses reported that Deandre Lucas Love, 31, of Indian River County was at the scene of the shooting and was in possession of a firearm. Mr. Love was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and arrested Saturday. He posted $25,000 bond on Sunday and was released from the Indian River County Jail. His participation in the shooting incident remains under investigation.
