Teen shot by St. Pete police remains in critical condition

ST. PETERSBURG — A teen who was shot by St. Petersburg police as he tried to flee from them in a stolen truck, according to officials, remained in critical condition Tuesday morning at Bayfront Medical Center.

Quade L. Everett, 17, has been hospitalized since the Monday morning shooting, the 10th time this year that St. Petersburg police have shot someone.

Everett, according to police, was behind the wheel of the stolen Ford F-150 when rookie police Officer Brian Fernandez fired his gun. Fernandez told investigators the truck was coming toward him.

It all began just after 7 a.m. when police received a report that a Ford F-150 and a GMC Envoy were missing from a driveway on Tanglewood Drive NE, police said. One of the vehicles had an Apple iPad inside. The owners tracked their tablet using GPS to an address near 20th Avenue S and 11th Street.

A bulletin went out over the radio. Fernandez responded first. When he arrived, he saw people removing belongings from several stolen cars parked in the front yard of a duplex at 2007 and 2011 11th St. S, police said.

Fernandez, who was sworn in this summer, approached and everyone scattered.

Everett was in the Ford, and was struck by at least one bullet. The teen, who has a history of juvenile arrests, had life-threatening injuries.

On Monday afternoon, several hours after the shooting, police said in a statement the truck was backed up in the front yard of the duplex, and that Everett drove it toward Fernandez.

Fernandez, 29, a newly hired officer, was placed on paid administrative leave while police and the Pinellas Pasco State Attorney's Office investigate.
