Palmetto Double Killer Captured In Tampa


(UPDATED   2:25 p.m.)    U.S. Marshals in Tampa have taken Devin Chandler into custody.




PALMETTO, Fla. (AP) _ Law enforcement statewide are looking for the man Palmetto police say carried out the Labor Day execution-style killings of two brothers inside their family’s convenience store.

25-year-old Devin Chandler is wanted on two counts of murder and one count of armed robbery.

Investigators say 23-year-old Khasem Yousef and 17-year-old Faares Yousef were killed Monday afternoon.

Video surveillance showed Chandler walking into the store, picking up a few items, then walking up to the counter. Police say that instead of paying, Chandler shot both brothers in the head.

Chandler was released from prison in September 2011 after serving less than two years on a three-year sentence for a conviction of attempted armed robbery with a weapon. Records show he’s on probation.
