GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Police say they’ve arrested a man suspected of fatally shooting two employees of a Florida apartment complex.

Tobias said a suspect was arrested in Lowndes County, Georgia, and a woman he was holding as a hostage was safely recovered. Police say a firearm was also recovered with the suspect. Neither was immediately identified.

Police say there was a bullet hole in an apartment complex window, and the bodies of a white man and a black man were found on the scene.
