As of Friday, there is nothing new to report in the shooting death of a Flomaton teen.

Chief Bryan Davis said Thursday his department continues to investigate the “suspicious death” of Kenneth Harris.

Harris was found Wednesday inside a Lender Street home dead from a gunshot wound to the head. Because of the home’s close proximity to the Florida line, emergency personnel and law enforcement from Escambia County, Fla., also responded to the scene.
