Police have detained a man who possibly linked to two recent fatal shootings in St. Petersburg.
The St. Petersburg Police Department said the man, who has not yet been identified, is being held in Hillsborough County on other charges.
Cops on the Pinellas County side of Tampa Bay are talking to the man about the fatal shootings of 60-year-old Vernon Williams on April 10 and Corlenzo Williams, 24, on April 12.
