That's when gunfire broke out, killing the two men and injuring a third person, Anthony Rodriguez.

On Monday afternoon, police arrested Marc for felony murder since, under Florida Law, anyone who participates in a violent felony that turns deadly can face a murder charge.

Rodriguez is also facing charges of felony murder and marijuana possession with intent to sell.

Marc and his brother are the sons of Roxanne Dubé who recently took the job as consul general in Miami.

The Canadian government and U.S. State Department officials are working with police in the investigation.
