ROOSEVELT, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a Long Island teen faces a pair of murder charges in connection with two fatal shootings.

Newsday reports (http://nwsdy.li/2jeZpJl ) the teen was arrested on Wednesday night in the Nassau County hamlet of Roosevelt.

Police say investigators obtained evidence while processing the 16-year-old that linked him to the November 2015 slaying of 33-year-old Gerber Hernandez and the June 2016 killing of 37-year-old Royston Hall.

Police say the Roosevelt teen was also involved in a November 2016 armed robbery, in which two masked males used a handgun to demand money from a delivery man. The assailants made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and food.

The teen also faces charges of robbery, reckless endangerment and unlawful fleeing of a police officer. He’s scheduled to be arraigned on Friday.
