Man suspected in fatal shooting surrenders

A man wanted in connection with a shooting that left two men dead has turned himself in and will face murder charges.

Willie J. Hudson, 28, of Lake Wales, surrendered Saturday at the Alachua County jail, the same day the second victim died.

John B. Adkins, 28, of Winter Haven, died Saturday at a Gainesville hospital where he had been since the shooting Wednesday.

Police responding to what they thought was a car accident found Kevin Harris, 29, of Gainesville, dead in the passenger seat of one of the cars with multiple gun shot wounds. Adkins, the driver, had also been shot.

Witnesses told police they saw Hudson fleeing the scene. Gainesville Police Sgt. Keith Kameg said police are focusing on robbery or drugs as a possible motive.
