JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Police have arrested one suspect, and there could be more arrests, in connection with a deadly shooting outside a Golden Corral restaurant.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is reporting on its Facebook page that 19-year-old Avery Wood is facing two counts of felony murder and two counts of armed robbery.

The shooting happened Sunday night at the Golden Corral on Normandy Boulevard.

Investigators say a witness told police that Wood had asked the witness to come along to help rob two acquaintances for drugs.

The conversation between the two groups led to gunshots outside the restaurant.

Matthew Bohannon, 24, and his 19-year-old brother, Andrew, were killed.

Investigators say Wood admitted to planning the robbery, getting friends to help, and being present during the robbery and shooting.

Police emphasize the shooting has nothing to do with the George Zimmerman case, saying the victims knew the suspects and met with them for a drug transaction.

What's going on JSO said there was NO sticker it was a drug deal gone bad and I went on line looking for George Zimmerman Stickers just to see if they were out there I found 0. Why would JSO say no if there were one Corey is in and has caused enough trouble for this situation that should have NEVER gone to trial. Come on ActionNews find the TRUTH!!!

Black people said there would be bloodshed if zimmerman was found not guilty. They put a free zimmerman sticker on their car to flare black peoples emotions, these kids were to naive to believe therr are individuals ready to call their bluff on spot and drop them dead rigt where they said. Atleast those kids died for what they believed in.

That's why you should do your OWN research. These two young men had a “Free Zimmerman” bumper sticker on their truck. THAT'S what got them shot! C/P Friends of the victims took to social media to report that the brothers had a “Free Zimmerman” bumper sticker on their truck. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office issued a statement denying that the killings were related to the Zimmerman trial. End C/P WHO ya gonna believe? His FRIENDS, or, well... someone with an agenda?

90% of all criminals get caught. Its just not worth taking a life or doing bodily harm to another. We are all children of God. Too bad criminals don't see it that way. Its just not worth spending the rest of your life in prison.

Drug related, not race related. So apparently the two brothers were no angels. Still sad for the family.

Meaning the victims were white. Why couldn't he pick some black people to rob and murder? Still remains to be proven he did it but with video tape should not be to hard.
