Torres.jpg
At approximately 4:00 am on, July 13, 2015, officers from the Palm Springs Police Department responded to a report of a suspicious incident and subsequent gun shots in the 3200 block of 2nd Avenue North. Multiple individuals were walking on 2nd Avenue North and encountered a vehicle that may have swerved off the road toward them. They yelled at the vehicle as it sped away. Shortly thereafter, several shots were fired and De’Andre Peyton was struck and killed.
After an extensive investigation that included questioning multiple witnesses, a suspect was developed. Last night, that suspect, Joshua Torres, attempted to turn himself into the Palm Beach County Jail. Palm Springs investigators took custody of Mr. Torres and brought him back to the Department for further questioning. Torres said Peyton and his friends “jumped” in front of his truck when he was within feet of them. He said he slowed and they began yelling at him so he accelerated away. He provided two different accounts of his actions immediately following the encounter. However, he did confirm that he went home, retrieved his Glock 9mm and walked into his backyard. His backyard is bordered by 2nd Avenue North and Elizabeth Street. He said he saw someone looking through his wooden fence, bordering Elizabeth Street, along with several other people near his white plastic fence, bordering 2nd Avenue North. Mr. Torres said he fired a shot into the air to “scare them” and then fired three more times toward the wooden fence. He further said he intended only to scare them and not injure or kill anyone. Torres said he went back into his home, put the handgun in his closet and went to sleep.
Mr. Torres has been charged with 2nd Degree Murder with a Firearm and Aggravated Assault with a Firearm. Additional charges are pending.

We are still asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or has any further information to contact Detective McCluskey at 561.304.4851.
