GULFPORT, Miss. — Court testimony alleges a man fatally shot two men in connection with a drug deal at an apartment complex.

The Sun Herald reports 35-year-old Torre Mandrell Clark is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of 40-year-old Fredrick Robinson and 45-year-old Terry Singleton at The Reserve at Three Rivers apartments on May 13. Accusations against Clark surfaced at a bond hearing Wednesday.

Harrison County Prosecuting Attorney Herman Cox says police have witnesses and phone records confirming that Clark fired shots inside the apartment and parking lot.

Cox says Clark shot Robinson inside of the apartment and shot Singleton in the parking lot because Singleton was a witness.

U.S. Marshals found Clark May 19 at a hotel in Meridian.

It’s unclear if Clark has a lawyer.
