St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office continues investigation into Sunday's shootings, according to Sheriff Ken J. Mascara
The St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office continues to investigate the shootings that took place Sunday in Fort Pierce and the unincorporated area just north of Fort Pierce, according to Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.

Three were fatally shot and two wounded, apparently all by the same person who killed himself.

"We still need the public's help with this investigation," Sheriff Mascara said. "We now believe that Adam Peavy, 22, of 3305 Ave. N, Fort Pierce, committed all the shootings that took place Sunday." The Sheriff said these were:

- The wounding at 10 a.m. of Keith Lewis Roberts, 58, of the 800 block of Boston Ave., Fort Pierce, in front of his home, which is being investigated by the Fort Pierce Police Department;

- The 10:30 a.m. shooting of two people at North 39th Street and Avenue F: Shane Patrick Streeter, 27, of Fort Pierce, who was pronounced dead at the scene, and the non-fatal shooting of Justin Rivera, 22, of Fort Pierce;

- The fatal shooting sometime Sunday of Peavy's father, Roy Peavy, who was found shot to death in his bedroom at his home at 3305 Avenue N; and

- The suicide of Adam Peavy, also of 3305 Avenue N,  in a black Toyota pickup truck, parked in front of an unoccupied home at 1405 North 45th Street.

Sunday night just after 7:15, a resident of the 1400 block of North 45th Street, reported a black Toyota pickup truck parked in front of a vacant home in that block, with the pickup's brake lights on. Deputies found Adam Peavy inside and believe that he shot himself to death with the semi-automatic handgun found inside the pickup truck next to the body.

At 8:49 p.m. Sunday, deputies arrived at the 3305 Avenue N home of Roy Peavy, Adam Peavy's father, to notify Roy Peavy of his son's death. No one answered the door. Deputies found the garage door open with two loudly barking dogs inside the garage. Once the dogs were removed, deputies went inside the home to check on the well-being of Roy Peavy. They found him in the bedroom, dead of a single gunshot wound.

"Deputies are working today to learn additional details," said Sheriff Mascara. "Anyone with information is asked to call 9-1-1 in St. Lucie County or Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-800-273-8477 (website tcwatch.org.) Those who call Crime Stoppers or leave a tip at the website can do so anonymously."
