The Montgomery Police Department has charged an 18-year-old man with two counts of capital murder in a June 4 triple homicide at a local grocery that shook the community.

Police identified Jarques Butler as a suspect in the triple homicide that killed George Elijah, Jr., 50, Daniel Lopez, 20, and Romero Lopez, 43, all of Montgomery, MPD Maj. Saba Coleman confirmed. Officers have not clarified which men Butler is charged with killing.

“Montgomery police continue to do excellent work bringing those who commit the worst offenses in our city to justice.,” Mayor Steven Reed said. “This case is far from over, and I have faith our officers will bring everyone involved in this heinous crime to justice. We encourage anyone with information to come forward and assist MPD, regardless of your legal status. Your help is crucial in keeping our community safe.”

The shootings happened after what leaders described as a robbery at a Troy Highway business called Tienda Los Hermanos. It was part of a string of at least five robberies targeting Latino businesses in the area that keep a large amount of cash on hand, said Felix Montelara, an advocate in the community.

At about 1:39 p.m. Tuesday, the police tried to make contact with Butler in the area of East Fifth Street, but he fled on foot. Officers as well as the Alabama Law Enforcement Aviation Unit located Butler and arrested him, Coleman said.

Butler is in the Montgomery jail without a bond. Police did not immediately release any other information.
