Florida police arrested a 19-year-old man, charging him with the shooting death last week of another 19-year-old he was afraid was going to out him as gay.

Daytona Beach police said Telan Mann was found dead on the sidewalk with multiple gunshot wounds on June 23, WESH reported.

Jakari Webb has been charged with first degree murder, Daytona Beach Police Chief Jakari E. Young said.

“There was some concern that Telan either had or was going to post something on social media kind of outing the suspect,” Young said.

Police said their investigation revealed the two had been talking online since February and that they made plans to meet for the first time at Forest Glen Boulevard and Oak Tree Circle, where Webb pulled out a gun and shot Mann.

A police officer nearby heard the shots and rushed to the scene, but he was too late to save Mann.

Investigators used surveillance video to identify Webb and track him to a house on Garden Street, near where he was arrested Tuesday night, police said.

In addition to first degree murder, Webb has been charged with a probation violation and resisting arrest for trying to flee officers who came to arrest him. According to WKMG, the state’s attorney’s office is considering whether to add a hate crime charge.
