Arrest Made in Tallahassee Double Homicide

Twenty-seven-year-old Ryan Hubbard is charged with the murders of 21-year-old Jamila Byers and 22-year-old Bryan Dyson.

SGT J.B. Johnson of the Tallahassee Police Department says, "Ten days ago we got a tip from a witness who gave us information that brought us to a level of probable cause. With that information, we tracked him down."

The bodies of Byers and Dyson were found back on September 14 in a car shot to death behind the Prince Murat Motel.

Investigators say Hubbard had family in the same apartment complex where the couple lived at 2501 South Meridian Road.

Dyson's mother says knowing the suspect makes it harder to bear.

Edna Dyson, Bryan's mother, says, "This is bad. This is bad. This can't be. I loved him. I love Ryan, I love Bryan. Bryan's my son, Ryan's my friend. This is bad. This can't be. This is just bad."

Myioshi Peterson, a friend of the Dyson family, adds, "Knowing that he came up to Bryan's mom and hugged her and said what he said to try to console her, that's what really made me upset."

Hubbard was picked up on two outstanding warrants facing two counts of first degree murder. Police say they believe the murders could be drug related. The investigation is ongoing.
