BROOKLYN PARK, Md. (WJZ)–A four-day manhunt is over for two suspects wanted in a double shooting near the Brooklyn Park library.

The shooting rattled the normally quiet community, and now two men are in police custody.

Corey Barnes III, 23, and Avon Jackson, 24, are charged with attempted murder, assault and weapons violations.

Police say Friday afternoon, Barnes and Jackson approached two men sitting on a bench in Brooklyn Heights Park right outside the library and started shooting at them.

One of the victims is James Toney, 24. Police say he was involved in the drug buy. He’s facing drug charges.
