6-year-old boy among 5 shot in Boynton Beach

Detectives receive conflicting accounts about shooting


BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. – A 6-year-old boy was among five people shot Saturday in Boynton Beach.

Boynton Beach police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater said the boy and four adults were shot shortly before 4:30 p.m. outside of a home on Northeast Second Street. 

Slater said four victims were taken to Delray Medical Center in Delray Beach, while the fifth victim was taken to Bethesda Hospital East.

"It's very sad, a 6-year-old shot," neighbor Robert Bresett told Local 10 News. "I have two young kids."

Bresett's 11-year-old son, Brady, said he witnessed the end of the shooting.

"I just heard, like, multiple gunshots, like rapid fire," Brady Bresett said.

Brady said he saw a light-colored car stop in the street before it sped off. He said the men inside the car were wearing masks.

"I saw everybody run over, so I went over, and then I saw the guy bleeding," Brady said.

The 6-year-old victim was identified Sunday as Calvin Daniel Jr. The other victims were identified as Joslyn Louis, 26, Kareem Daley, 30, David Daley, 28, and Julian Daley, 33.

Slater said detectives are receiving conflicting accounts from witnesses about "what led up to and actually occurred here (Saturday)." She said the vehicle involved in the shooting was a white four-door sedan with dark tint.

None of the victims' injuries are considered life-threatening.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call detectives at 561-732-8116 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at 800-458-TIPS.
