LAKE WORTH A homeless woman who reportedly used drugs outside a Lake Worth home was at the heart of a fight late Monday that ended with one man being shot and another repeatedly being stabbed, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office records state.
The woman called a friend some time after 10 p.m. Monday and said she’d been punched by Gary Steven White outside a rental community his father manages on Federal Highway. White’s father, who shares his son’s first and last name, told authorities his son began arguing with the woman over her alleged drug use.
Moments after the call, the woman’s friend heard a noise outside his home on North M Street, just west of North Federal Highway.
The man opened his door and saw two men outside the fence. The younger man, the 47-year-old White, entered the home, despite the resident’s orders to stay outside.
The resident shot White in the abdomen. White screamed for his “daddy,” records state.
“Daddy, he shot me,” White reportedly yelled.
His father came running. The older White and the resident struggled over the gun, the resident said, and eventually the resident threw down the firearm.
The resident felt a pain in his back. He then realized he was being stabbed, the police report said.White (the younger) is being charged.
