JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office arrested two people in connection with an arson and shooting at a local motel.

Police say Donald and James Dickerson showed up at a motel room with guns, tied everyone up and stole $400 in cash.

The two are also accused of sexually assaulting two women, and shooting one in the head.

The woman was shot when she resisted the attack.  Police say she will recover but may have some brain damage.

A third man in the room was tied up and smothered with a pillow.

Police say the two suspects then set the room on fire.

The man helped the women get out of the motel room.

Police say one of the victims knew the attackers, and called one of them to come to the motel to hang out.  Police say she didn't expect them to show up armed and dangerous.

Police arrested the two suspects on Monday.

The Dickersons face charges of arson, false imprisonment, sexual battery, carjacking, armed robbery and attempted murder.

Lol its ok for these people to carry out these senseless acts with hardly any media coverage because that would just be racist to pick on the poor black community.

These piles of human waste should be executed the minute they are found guilty. No appeals, no plea deals, just justice served up the way it should be, fair and fast. Then in my opinion and with their arrest history they should have been executed a long time ago. Now I'm just waiting on their family to go on TV and say what good boys they are.

If its proven they did what is alleged just go ahead and kill them and be done with it. If you let them out again the next time they shoot someone they most likely won't survive it. If the women were white, and raped that qualifies as hate crime. Check their guns out see if used in any other murders in the area. If so death by firing squad should be brought back. Be fun to watch these monsters see how it feels. Yes I said fun many of us go out our way to try not to steal, kill, or do drugs. The people who don't break these laws then get to suffer at the hands of those who do. Instead repealing stand your ground we need to expand it to include anyone involved in criminal activity at the time they are shot are helpless to sue in civil court after the fact.
