BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. --A man detained by police after two people were shot and killed in Boynton Beach is now under arrest and facing two counts of first-degree murder with a firearm and armed robbery with a firearm.
The shooting happened around 1:30 Sunday afternoon in the 200 block of NW Third Avenue.
Police identified the suspect as 26-year-old Joseph Bruny Jr., of Boynton Beach.
Bruny told police he sells marijuana and the victims were his clients, according to a probable cause affidavit.
He told police the pair owed him money for about a quarter pound of marijuana, and claims when he confronted them one pulled a sub-machine gun so he began shooting, according to the police report.
Police said the victims suffered multiple wounds.
Bruny is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail. A judge denied him bond at a first appearance Monday morning.
Police have not officially identified the victims.
