JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Police have arrested one suspect, and there could be more arrests, in connection with a deadly shooting outside a Golden Corral restaurant.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is reporting on its Facebook page that 19-year-old Avery Wood is facing two counts of felony murder and two counts of armed robbery.

The shooting happened Sunday night at the Golden Corral on Normandy Boulevard.

Investigators say a witness told police that Wood had asked the witness to come along to help rob two acquaintances for drugs.

The conversation between the two groups led to gunshots outside the restaurant.

Matthew Bohannon, 24, and his 19-year-old brother, Andrew, were killed.

Investigators say Wood admitted to planning the robbery, getting friends to help, and being present during the robbery and shooting.

Police emphasize the shooting has nothing to do with the George Zimmerman case, saying the victims knew the suspects and met with them for a drug transaction.
