One of two men sought in the shooting  death of a St. Aug student surrendered to police Thursday.

Twenty-two-year-old Trever Mitchell turned himself in at the Seventh District station. After being questioned he'll be taken to Central Lock-up and booked accordingly. Police are still looking for 25-year-old Donovan Williams. Both men face a charge of second-degree murder in the death of 18-year-old Jawara Givens.

The shooting happened Tuesday around 1:30 a.m. in the 6800 block of Lake Kenilworth Drive. Officers arriving on the scene found Givens shot multiple times inside a vehicle. He was hospitalized in critical condition and died from his injuries Thursday .

St. Augustine released the following statement:

"As a community we have had a difficult summer, and our feelings of sadness and loss extend across our campus and beyond. Our prayers are with the family and friends of Jawara Givens, as well as the entire St. Augustine High School Family. 

"Jawara was admired by faculty and peers alike. It is with a shared sense of shock and sadness that the St. Augustine High School Family expresses our utmost sympathy over the meaningless act of violence that resulted in the devastating loss of our bright, rising senior.

"Our guidance counselors, as well as other support staff are on campus and available to meet with students and faculty, and will continue to offer support as needed. We encourage everyone in our community to check in with friends and classmates if they seem to be in need. We are here for one another, and everyone is an important piece of what makes up the Purple Knight family."

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
