2 still sought in fatal shooting at Alabama gas station

Police in Alabama have arrested two men following a shooting at a Selma gas station that left one dead and two wounded, and are searching for two more.

The Selma Police Department says 30-year-old Jimmie Lee Tyus and Darryl Davuntay Kennedy are wanted on charges including murder. Twenty-year-old Jeffery James Bennett Jr. and 21-year-old Vincent Devonte Ellis were arrested Tuesday on similar charges.

The Saturday shooting left 26-year-old Ernest Weaver Daniels III dead. Selma Police Sgt. Ray Blanks tells AL.com that investigators later learned two gunshot wound victims were treated and released at a local hospital. Chief Spencer Collier tells The Selma Times Journal they were 20-year-old Matravius Aaron and 19-year-old Marquavius Benjamin.

The Journal reports a suspected arson and separate shooting are believed to be connected to the slaying.
