Two Arrested, One At Large in Tampa-Area Double Homicide: Police

Two people are under arrest in connection with a deadly Tampa-area home invasion in which two adults were gunned down while their five children were present in the home. According to police, a third suspect is still at-large.

According to a report from NBC affiliate WFLA, Bradenton Police arrested 18-year-old Trey Nonombre and 18-year-old Jimmie Lee McNear, both of Bradenton; and are searching for 33-year-old Terez Jones, also of Bradenton.

The three have been identified in the murders of Kantral Brooks and Ester Deneus, both 29-years-old. The two were gunned down in their Bradenton home last Thursday during a violent home invasion. The couple's five children, who range in age from infancy to 11-years-old, were in the home at the time and were left unharmed.

Brandenton Police told WFLA they found the glass of the front door of the home shattered. Police are unsure of exactly how much the children witnessed.

The children are said to be safe and are currently in the care of relatives.

Nonombre and McNear have each been charged with two counts of second-degree murder and one count of attempted home invasion, reports indicate. It is not known whether they have hired an attorney. Jones is expected to face the same charges upon capture.

Investigators have not released a motive for the shooting.

Police consider Jones to be armed and dangerous.
