Published Sep. 13, 2005

Police are looking for a 19-year-old suspect in last Tuesday's gang-related shootings in the Meadowlawn neighborhood.

Detectives have charged Tuan Anh Do with shooting three teens during a confrontation between rival gangs outside 7130 Meadowlawn Drive in northern St. Petersburg.

Police say he stood in the house's front yard wearing a bulletproof vest and fired eight rounds from a Chinese version of an AK-47. Bullets hit three youths in the back, shoulder and foot. None of the wounds was life-threatening.
