    According to police, the three people who were shot are Johnson's mom, uncle, and aunt, who had gone to a home looking for the teen when they were shot.

    Dive team members from the Miami-Dade Police Department searched a canal where Brice told investigators he threw his gun after the shooting. After hours in the water, dive teams were unable to find it. 

    Police continue to investigate Brice's involvement with Johnson. One of the things they want to figure out is if he was having a relationship with the teen. 

    DCF has opened a child protective investigation due to this incident.
