COLUMBIA COUNTY, Fla. -- A man accused of a deadly Columbia County double shooting early Saturday is behind bars.

Authorities arrested 21-year-old Willie Wingfield III, charging him with two counts of homicide.

Witnesses say Wingfield was the trigger-man behind a shooting outside the Sante Fe Bar in High Springs Saturday morning.

They say Wingfield shot 38-year-old Dennis Smith and 24-year-old Erik Akins, both of Fort White, after an argument.

Both men were found dead at the scene.

Authorities got a warrant for Wingfield's arrest yesterday and captured him in Daytona Sunday.
