Authorities in New Jersey say a 39-year-old man has been charged for the deaths of two men, each shot in the head at an apartment complex Sunday morning.
The Ocean County prosecutor says police responded to the complex in Lakewood around 7:20 a.m. for reports of shots fired. Upon arrival, officers found Tyshaun Drummond, who police say matched the description of their suspect.
Police engaged the man outside of a building and ordered him to the ground, Prosecutor Bradley Billhimer said in a statement late Sunday. When Drummond allegedly failed to comply, police tased the man and took him into custody.
Exclusive video from The Lakewood Scoop appears to show police tasing the suspect in an effort to bring him in.

Once inside the apartment building, police found the bodies of Nicholas Hardy, 36, of Toms River, and Sergio Chavez-Perez, 32, of Lakewood.
Drummond has been charged with two counts of murder as well as possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, according to the prosecutor.
The connection between Drummond and the two victims was not clear. An investigation by local law enforcement agencies is ongoing.
