TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Three men have been arrested in connection to a shooting in Tallahassee that claimed the lives of two people.

The Tallahassee Police Department says Thyland Jones, 21, Kassiem McNeill, 20, and Miguel Martinez, 45, have all been arrested.

They said that officers were called to the Tyson Green Condominiums on Tyson Green Way just before 11 p.m. Saturday when a neighbor heard gunshots. 

A court document says that police found 17-year-old Nakenya Richardson and 26-year-old Shomari Fuller suffering from gunshot wounds in a car. 

Police say when emergency crews arrived on the scene, they tried to provide lifesaving medical care to a 17-year-old girl, Nakenya Richardson, and Shomari Fuller, a 26-year-old man, but were unsuccessful.

TPD says that they were told by friends and relatives that Fuller was "flashy" and often carried large amounts of cash on him. Police believe that Fuller may of had drugs and money when he was shot and killed, but were unable to find either at the scene.

Police say, however, that Fuller's pocket was turned inside out when he was found.

According to a neighbor who was taking a walk at the time, around 10:30 p.m., a silver Ford sedan backed into a parking space in a dark part of the complex. The neighbor told police that those areas are known for drug activity.

When the neighbor shined a flashlight at the suspicious car, he saw the driver was a white man, around 30-40 years old. The document says the driver was wearing "Aviator" styled glasses.

The document says that when the witness arrived back at his apartment after 15 or so minutes, he heard multiple gun shots and a woman screaming, followed by more gun shots.

When the neighbor went outside, he saw a white Dodge Charger two spaces away from where the now missing silver Ford was parked. As he approached the car, he saw two victims inside.

The neighbor then ran to get help. 

Jones has been charged with 1st degree murder and robbery with a firearm, McNeill has been charged with accessory after the fact to 1st degree murder, burglary, tampering with evidence, and Martinez has also been charged as an accessory to murder.
