A man was arrested Wednesday and charged with killing two men outside a Fort Lauderdale meat market the day before, according to police.

Vincent Keith Jones, 48, of Lauderhill was being held at Broward’s main jail Thursday on two counts of first degree murder.

On Tuesday, police received a call that shots were fired on the 1700 block of Northwest Sixth Court. When officers arrived, they found one wounded man in the parking lot of Ray’s Meat Market, 1707 Northwest Sixth St., and another in the roadway.

The men, who both died from their injuries, were identified as Seibert H. Prescott, 63, and Roger O. Bennett, 30.

According to police, Bennett and Prescott got into a verbal argument with three men and one took out a gun and started firing.

Police Spokeswoman Det. DeAnna Greenlaw said Thursday the investigation was still ongoing.
