JACKSONVILLE, Fla. –
Forty-eight hours after two brothers were killed at a Westside restaurant, police announced the arrest of 19-year-old Avery Wood on two counts of felony murder and two counts of robbery.
Wood is accused of the shooting deaths of 19-year-old Matthew Bohannon and 24-year-old Andrew Bohannon in the parking lot of a Golden Corral Sunday night.
Investigators said Wood admitted he planned to rob the brothers for their drugs, and recruited others to help carry out the crime.
Andrew and Matthew Bohannon Bohannon’s parents admitted that their sons once used marijuana, but they told Channel 4 that their kids weren’t involved with dealing drugs.
“It’s just not true, it wasn’t about drugs,” said Stephanie Bohannon. “They went prepared with guns, it wasn’t about drugs.”
