Tyheem Melton, 37, is suspected in the shooting deaths of Troy Wimberly and Crystal Shadding on April 6, according to a FBI news release. Agents think that that Melton might be in either the Columbia or Hartsville areas.

FBI agents accuse Melton of walking into a West Philadelphia bar, and shooting both Wimberly and Shadding with a .40 caliber handgun. He is considered to be armed and dangerous, a spokesman with the FBI’s Philadelphia office said.
