|Avery Wood is the first suspect to be arrested.|
Police report there was not a "Free Zimmerman" bumper sticker on the truck and police still claim the shooting was a drug deal gone bad, and not related to the Zimmerman verdict nor a hate crime. However, it's another example of the high rate of black on white crime that doesn't get national attention, where as whites are victims of black crime more so than blacks are victims of white crimes.
Police said Wood plotted to get a group of people together and rob the brothers, Andrew Bohannon, 24, and Matthew Bohannon, 19, of drugs.
The planned transaction was set to take place Sunday at the Golden Corral on Normandy Boulevard.
Instead, surveillance video shows someone from inside a car opening fire at the brothers, who were inside another car, according to police.
Police also said Wood admitted to trying to rope in others to take part in the robbery with him. Witnesses verified that information.
It is unclear exactly what led to the shootings. One brother died on scene. Another died at a local hospital.
Wood was located and arrested on Tuesday and appeared before a judge Wednesday morning for the first time in reference to this case. Wood will be held without bail.UPDATE2:
Two brothers 24-year-old Andrew Austin Bohannon and 19-year-old Matthew Ryan Bohannon, both in the same car, were approached by another car carrying multiple occupants.However, Police are now claiming it was a suspected drug deal gone wrong in which the four who shot Andrew and Matthew were attempting to rob them during a drug deal.
The car with multiple occupants fired shots into the car carrying the two men.
One victim was pronounced dead on the scene and the other victim was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Now rumors have spread that the deadly shooting is in retaliation to a bumper sticker placed on the Bohannon's truck that said "Free Zimmerman".
Several of our viewers commenting on our Facebook page about the controversial theory: Christina Lemire wrote, "Definitely had to do with the Zimmerman case"
Kimberely Martin Faqua wrote: "Nice way to try to cover up a hate crime JSO. Unfortunately the public knows better."
The social media rumors circulated so far that the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office released a statement Monday that reads:
"Normandy Blvd. Shooting Update - We have had numerous inquiries, blog comments, and Facebook postings about the relationship between the Normandy double homicide last night in the Golden Corral parking lot and the outcome of the George Zimmerman trial. We are confident to say where we are in the investigation that this is not the case at all. There is NO link at all between these cases, nor did we ever suspect one."
Four arrests made in double murder of brothers
Since the George Zimmerman verdict this week there have been outraged Trayvon Martin protesters in the streets in several large cities committing acts of violence, robbery, and obstructing traffic.
However, there have also been several assault cases reported and at least one attempted murder. Now we have this case of two young, white teens slaughtered for having a "Free Zimmerman" bumper sticker on their truck in Florida. The race baiting and the calls to violence by groups like the New Black Panther Party[NBPP] have only added to the violence and domestic terrorism running rampant on the streets. Sadly it doesn't look like it will end anytime soon since the Obama administration, led by the race baiter Eric Holder, is pursuing civil rights charges against an innocent man because he and the NAACP, NBPP and others like them insist George Zimmerman must suffer and hang. They have created a political lynching and have shown no respect for the rule of law and our justice system. Instead they are inciting more violent acts and now two innocent and defenseless teens are dead because of their rage and lawlessness!!
This is outrageous to think the police are not calling it a hate crime and saying it was an 'attempted armed robbery' even though nothing was taken! More arrests are expected, but to not call this a hate crime related to the George Zimmerman verdict is outrageous, when it is clear they were targeted because of their pro-Zimmerman bumper sticker and weren't robbed!
"Two white teenagers were murdered in the parking lot of a Golden Corral in Jacksonville, FL. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s office says they were killed by multiple perpetrators, and that they have a photo of the suspect’s car. There were also multiple witnesses."
Update: Police just made an arrest and say more arrests should come shortly. Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is calling it an armed robbery and not a hate crime, even though it appears nothing was stolen.
Family and friends 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.
