PALM COAST, Fla. - An 18-year-old student was found dead overnight Saturday, according to Flagler County Sheriff's deputies.

Curtis Israel Gray was found at Palm Coast Laundry shortly after 12:30 a.m. Saturday.

Deputies found Gray with a gunshot wound and he was airlifted to a trauma hospital, where he died, deputies said.

FCSO detectives and deputies are currently investigating the incident and following all leads.

Officials believe this to be an isolated incident and there is no immediate danger to the community.
