OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Police have made an arrest in the November shooting deaths of two Omaha people.

Omaha police say 24-year-old Akeem Jones was arrested this week on suspicion of two counts of first-degree murder in the Nov. 4 shootings of 23-year-old Johnnesha Brown and 28-year-old Stephen Arps. Brown died at the scene of the shooting; Arps died several days later from his injuries.

Jones was already in jail when he was arrested for the November shootings. He has been charged in a different January homicide as an accessory, accused of being the getaway driver.

Jones remained in jail Friday and could not be reached for comment.
