RIPLEY (AP) — Police have made an arrest in a double homicide in West Tennessee.
Juwun Lake, 19, was taken into custody Tuesday by the U.S. Marshals Service and charged with two counts of first-degree murder, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.
He is charged with fatally shooting Dietrich Rogers, 41, and Joshua Yancy, 30, the bureau said. Ripley Police officers responded Saturday night to a report of a shooting and found the men’s bodies.
A joint investigation between Ripley police and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation identified Lake as a suspect.
He remains in the Lauderdale County Jail without bond awaiting his first court appearance, the bureau said.
It wasn’t immediately clear if Lake has an attorney.
