The two victims, whose identities weren't released, were found shot to death inside a car in the 4600 block of Northwest 59th Court back on Dec. 26.

Detectives identified James as a person of interest and obtained multiple search warrants, officials said.

On Tuesday, detectives went to a home in North Lauderdale to serve the search warrants and James barricaded himself inside the home, officials said.

SWAT officers responded and used tear gas and negotiators to get James to leave the home but he refused for nine hours before finally surrendering Wednesday morning, officials said.

James was booked into the Broward jail where he remained held without bond Friday, records showed. Attorney information wasn't available.
