ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. (WCJB) - Alachua County sheriff’s deputies arrested a man suspected of committing a double murder in the Tampa area.

Deputies stopped 29-year-old James Pagan as he was driving north on I-75 Friday morning.

Saint Petersburg police initially asked for help arresting him because Pagan disabled his ankle monitor.

Later, they connected Pagan to a shooting in Saint Petersburg that left two people dead.

He is being held at the Alachua County Jail.
