Palm Beach high school results and schedules

Once Jacoby Brissett put the much-anticipated announcement regarding his football future to rest Friday night, the Dwyer senior proceeded to show why he's also an outstanding basketball player.

Brissett, one of the nation's hightly touted quarterbacks, told a jam-packed crowed at Dwyer's Panther Pit during a pregame Senior Night ceremony that he was headed to the University of Florida on a football scholarship. Then he helped lead Dwyer to an 82-49 rout of rival Jupiter.

Despite a sluggish start, Brissett scored 18 points to complement the 20 points that senior shooting guard Vic Adams poured in, as the Panthers (22-2) flexed their muscles and showed why they're the county's top-ranked team.

Brissett joked to the capacity crowd during his announcement that he was going to "forfeit" his grades this year "and come back for another year at Dwyer." That drew as much applause and cheers as a few seconds later when he announced his intent to sign with Florida. A few minutes later when he introduced as a starter, he did a Gator chomp in front of the scorer's table.

Brissett showed some nerves early in the game, missing his first two shots from the field and also missing his first two free throws. His first field goal, however, was a crowd-pleasing slam dunk on a fast break that he ignited with a steal near mid-court. He swished his next shot from three-point range.

"I'm glad it's over and now I can concentrate on winning a [basketball] championship," Brissett said after the game.

Both teams had trouble scoring the first few minutes of the game before Dwyer went on a scoring binge that gave the Panthers a 24-7 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Dwyer led 52-27 at halftime and stretched the lead to 69-34 five minutes into the third quarter. By rule, the remainder of the game was played with a running clock after Dwyer's lead became 35 points.

Bobby Hain led Jupiter (17-6) with 12 points.

Gang members caught in Long Beach cop shooting

Two teens are in custody and have been charged with a shooting that wounded a Long Beach police officer. The officer was patrolling in an unmarked car when the shots were fired.

About 40 officers filed out of the Long Beach Courthouse after seeing in person the two gang members suspected of shooting at two of their fellow detectives.

The shooting happened last weekend near MacArthur Park in Long Beach. The two uniformed gang detectives were patrolling in an unmarked police car.

One bullet wounded a 30-year-old detective in the upper torso.

After five days of intense investigation, police announced two arrests.

"They have been identified as Erick Sianez and David Silva, both 19 years, residents of Long Beach and both local documented gang members," said Long Beach Police Chief Jim McDonnell.

Police allege the suspects dumped a handgun after the shooting and abandoned their vehicle a few blocks away. Witness interviews and forensic evidence helped lead police to Silva and Sianez.

Police suspect the teens shot at the detectives because they were fleeing a separate crime scene.

"They were leaving the scene where they had fired a shot in vicinity of some people who were at the street," said McDonnell. "I think anyone who was going to get in their way, they were going to do what they had to do to get away."

Police say the injured detective has been released from the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

Police say the investigation is ongoing, and more suspects may be involved.

Silva And Sianez face a number of charges, including attempted murder of the two police officers.

Silva is being held on more than $3 million bail. Sianez's bail is set at more than $2 million.
