LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - The Polk County Sheriff’s Office says it has positively identified an arrest warrant for a third suspect in a Lakeland triple homicide.

The Sheriff’s Office says in a news release that 25-year-old Jamaal John Smith, whose last known residence was in Miami, is being sought in the Jan. 6 deaths of 24-year-old David Washington, 31-year-old Eneida Branch and 23-year-old Angelica Guadalupe Castro.

Smith is being charged with three counts of first-degree murder, one count of attempted murder and one count of armed burglary,

Deputies arrested 35-year-old Andrew Joseph and 26-year-old Jonathan Alcegaire in connection with the shootings earlier in the month.
