Panama City Police are charging four suspects in connection with the murder of a 19 year old Saturday night.

Friends of Powell’s say he left their apartment around 10:30 to meet some people and go to another party. Shortly after he left, they heard gun shots. Around 7:00 Sunday morning Powell’s friends found him dead from several gunshot wounds.
