Updated October 2, 2012:  The Coffeyville Police Department says Brazell Scott surrendered to authorities today.

Scott is a suspect in the weekend murder of James Logan and Latrell Boyd.

Posted September 29, 2012 and updated October 1, 2012:  Authorities have identified a suspect in a double homicide in Coffeyville, Kansas this weekend.

Authorities are searching for Brazell Scott, 30, saying he should be considered armed and dangerous, and should not be approached.

If you see him, you should call the police.

Both James Logan, 32 of Coffeyville, and Latrell Boyd, 31 of Pine Bluff, Arkansas, were found dead in the 600 block of East 3rd Street early Saturday morning from gunshot wounds.  A third shooting victim, Jeremy Jordan, 20 of Coffeyville, was taken to the hospital and later released.

Police Chief Tony Celeste says the shootings took place between Coffeyville Village and Cleveland Apartments, but none of the victims are believed to have lived in either location.  One resident says he heard up to 10 shots fired.

Authorities say a suspect is also being sought in a second, unrelated shooting that occurred at around 1:15 a.m. on Saturday.  A victim sought medical treatment from a gunshot wound but the exact location of the second shooting is still being investigated.

The police are asking anyone with information on either of the shootings to call Coffeyville police.
