DALLAS (AP) - Police are searching for a 25-year-old man they say shot and killed two half-brothers during a confrontation at a nightclub.
An arrest warrant affidavit released Tuesday by authorities shows Jerome Bernard Deamus is facing a charge of capital murder. They say he pulled a handgun during the dispute early Sunday morning with 22-year-old Christopher Ferguson and shot him multiple times. Deamus then was rushed by 39-year-old Cecil Ferguson, who was shot once in the chest. The affidavit says Cecil Ferguson died at the scene and his half-brother later died at a hospital.
The shootings were recorded by the club's video surveillance cameras.
The Dallas Morning News reports Deamus is a convicted felon and authorities say he goes by the nickname Big Daddy. He has a tattoo across his back that reads Dixon.
