    The shooting happened late Sunday in a neighborhood in northern Palm Beach County. On Monday morning, police evacuated a number of homes along the street after finding a suspicious package.

    Nearby Jupiter Christian School was also closed to minimize traffic during the investigation.

    The person of interest was taken into custody in nearby Palm Beach Gardens on Monday morning. That person hasn't been identified.
