Authorities are still looking for Nicholas Lopez, a person of interest in an August double homicide at Misty Oaks Apartments in Pine Hills, an Orange County Sheriff's spokeswoman said.
Lopez may be in Charlotte, N.C., where his brother David Lopez, 32, was arrested Aug. 9, said Jane Watrel, a sheriff's office spokeswoman.
The Aug. 5 shooting killed two people, Ron Williams, 32, and Amanda Johnson, 27, and injured two others.
After Johnson and another woman, Megan Goodman, witnessed another shooting in Magnolia Pointe Circle Aug. 5, Nicholas Lopez allegedly took them to an apartment where Johnson and Williams would later be killed, according to court records.
David Lopez was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one of attempted murder. Another man, James Stewart Jr., was arrested after an 11-hour standoff Aug. 8.
According to court records, Stewart allegedly shot his girlfriend, Stephanie Nyen, during an argument.
Nyen was taken to an Altamonte Springs hospital and was in critical condition after the shooting.
Stewart told Johnson and Goodman, who were in the apartment during the shooting, that he would kill them if they told anyone what happened, according to court documents.
Nicholas Lopez took Johnson and Goodman to the Misty Oaks Apartments in Pine Hills. About half an hour later, David Lopez arrived and got a phone call from Stewart ordering him to "get rid of" witnesses, court records show.
David Lopez allegedly shot Johnson, then shot Goodman twice, records show. He then kicked in a bedroom door and shot Williams, deputies said.

UPDATE: I have not been able to find any new online articles in the four years since I first posted this case. As far as I can tell, Lopez is still wanted for questioning as of this update (7/28/2018). However, if anyone has any updates/proof-of-updates one way or the other, they are always more than welcome to let us know.
