Riverview, Fla.-(Newsradio 970 WFLA)-Hillsborough County deputies are charging 31 year-old Raynald Joseph Lamothe with those murders at the Chevron gas station on Madison Avenue in the Progress Village area.

Deputies say Lamothe shot and killed 24 year-old Dremaine Johnson and 23 year-old James Nicholas in his car at the gas station during an altercation with the two men.  A witness to the shooting told deputies that the killer was driving a dark Nissan Altima.

That car was spotted later in Orange County during a trespassing investigation at a 7-11 in the Orlando area.  The deputy noticed blood in the vehicle and a bullet hole in the side of the car when Lamothe was arrested.
