The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday morning they have arrested two people in connection with a fatal shooting Sunday night near Lantana.

Deputies found Justin Scott Vanmeter, 28, of Lantana shot at 10:45 p.m. on a sidewalk near the Hypoluxo Food Mart located in the 1300 block of Hypoluxo Rd.

 

Vanmeter, an employee at a Cracker Barrel in Boynton Beach, later died from his injuries at a hospital.

PBSO said they have arrested Mcintosh Pierre-Paul, 25, and Jean Mary Marcherno, 20, in the case.

Both suspects face first-degree murder charges.

Detectives said Vanmeter was seen on surveillance video talking and shaking hands with one of the suspects outside the convenience store just before he was shot. The victim was also seen counting his money in the store.

At a court hearing Wednesday morning, a judge issued no bond for both men.
