FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) — A 28-year-old man has been accused of killing two brothers who lived in Fort Dodge.

Police say Tanner King, of Fort Dodge, was arrested Thursday night. Webster County court records say he's charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one of attempted murder. The records don't list the name of an attorney who could comment for him.

He's accused of Monday's fatal shooting of 37-year-old Marion and 34-year-old Eldominic Rhodes. A criminal complaint says the younger man's body was found in an alley and his older brother's body was found in a nearby apartment parking lot.

Police say King fired a shot at another man but missed.
