RIDGELAND, S.C. (AP) – Authorities have captured a suspect in South Carolina following the shooting deaths of two half brothers in a Georgia sports bar.

The Telegraph of Macon reports 26 year-old Travis Thomas Jr. was arrested Monday on two counts of murder and aggravated assault stemming from a March 2 shooting at a sports bar in Warner Robins. Both 24 -year-old Kenny Hart Jr and 26-year-old Jabrial Adam were fatally shot in the chest.

South Carolina’s Jasper County Sheriff’s Office wrote on their Facebook page that they recently received a call from Georgia deputies who said Thomas was near Ridgeland.

Officials say local officers on Monday found Thomas hiding in a house.

Thomas is awaiting extradition to Georgia.

It’s unclear whether he has an attorney.
