The incident began Monday night when the Bay County Sheriff’s Office was called to a shooting at a home on Annabella Lane.

Investigators determined Damenike T. Lakes, 18, shot Spiegelhalter and a subsequent interview with Lakes led to his admission that he shot Spiegelhalter in the stomach, deputies wrote in a news release.

“While conducting the investigation into the shooting, it was learned that Lakes was sexually active with a 14-year-old. Interviews with Lakes and the juvenile led to both admitting that they had engaged in sexual intercourse on at least three different occasions.

Lakes was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and three counts of lewd or lascivious battery on a minor under 16.
