Search on for suspect in Bronx double murder
EASTCHESTER (WABC) -- Police are looking for a suspect in a grisly double murder outside a Bronx motel.
42-year-old Joseph Kernizan is suspected of shooting 2-people early Saturday morning.
Officers responded to a call of shots fired shortly after 3 a.m. at the Holiday Motel.
The motel is located along the New England Thruway in Eastchester.
38-year-old Tracy Bennett of Elmhurst, an 50-year-old Wayne Hamilton of Milwaukee were both found shot in the head in the parking lot.
Hamilton is reportedly a reggae singer who goes by the name of "Captain Barkey".
Police say this was not a murder-suicide, and that they are looking for a gunman who they believe fled the scene.
