A 14-year-old Palm Beach Gardens boy was stabbed to death by a “homeless drifter” in what appears to have been “a completely random act,” the city’s police chief said Thursday.
Semmie Williams Jr., 39, was arrested on a charge of first-degree murder Wednesday night.
Palm Beach Gardens Police Chief Clint Shannon said there didn’t appear to be a motive other than an “innocent child victim having a chance encounter with a very violent criminal.”
Shannon said Williams had no ties to Palm Beach County or Palm Beach Gardens.

Semmie Lee Williams, 39, was arrested in Miami late Wednesday in connection to the murder of high school freshman Ryan Rogers, authorities confirmed at a press conference.
The teen was found dead on Nov. 16 on Central Boulevard near the Interstate 95 overpass in Palm Beach Gardens — and his death quickly ruled a “deliberate act.”
