The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office have released the following statement regarding that drug related incident:
Avery Wood, 19 has been arrested for two counts of Felony Murder and two counts of Armed Robbery. The investigation revealed video surveillance at the restaurant showing the victim's vehicle driving up and meeting with the suspect vehicle and someone ultimately shooting both victims.
A witness came forward who provided investigators with information that the suspect, Avery Wood requested that the witness participate in a robbery of his acquaintances, victims Matthew and Andrew Bohannon for drugs. Other witnesses did come forward who advised that the defendant made statements that he and other suspects were going to rob the victims of their drugs.
On July 16, 2013 at 8:59 a.m. police located and interviewed the suspect. The defendant admitted to planning the robbery of the for drugs, sought out persons to assist with the robbery, and admitted that he was present during the robbery.
Police are currently working the case and more arrests are pending. Once again, this case has no correlation to the outcome of the George Zimmerman verdict. These victims knew the suspects, and met with the occupants of the vehicle to complete a drug transaction. There was not a "Free Zimmerman" sticker on the victim's vehicle.
