A man suspected of fatally shooting two people outside a convenience store over the weekend was charged with capital murder, authorities said Tuesday.

Antonio Shaw, 27, of Birmingham was charged in the killings of Joseph Demetrice Robinson, 25, and Rikki Dunri Christopher Bynum, 27, the Birmingham Police Department said in a statement.

Shaw also was charged with two counts attempted murder because one person was wounded and Robinson’s young son was present.

Shaw ran away from the store after shots rang out Saturday night and was arrested nearby after a witness provided a description to officers, police said.

No bond was set for Shaw, who was being held in the city jail. Court records weren’t available to show whether he had a lawyer who could speak on his behalf.
