DALLAS, Texas Authorities say they've captured the man suspected of fatally shooting two half-brothers during a confrontation at a Dallas nightclub.

Twenty-five-year-old Jerome Bernard Deamus was taken into custody Tuesday. An arrest warrant affidavit states Deamus, a convicted felon, is facing a charge of capital murder. He's being held at the Dallas County jail.

Authorities say he pulled a handgun during the dispute early Sunday morning with 22-year-old Christopher Ferguson and shot him multiple times. Deamus then was rushed by 39-year-old Cecil Ferguson, who was shot once in the chest. The affidavit says Cecil Ferguson died at the scene and his half-brother later died at a hospital.

The shootings were recorded by the club's video surveillance cameras.

Online jail records did not indicate an attorney for Deamus
