Veteran St. Petersburg Police Officer David Crawford was shot and killed Feb. 21 as he and another officer investigated a report of a prowler at a downtown residence.
Crawford's killing came one month after two St. Petersburg Police officers were shot dead — the city's first officers killed in the line of duty in 31 years.
Police arrested 16-year-old Nicholas Lindsey Feb. 22 after a 24-hour manhunt. Lindsey turned himself into authorities. He gave police several stories, but ultimately admitted to shooting and killing Officer Crawford.
