Last week, police released video of three masked gunmen who they suspect shot and killed Kantral Brooks and his girlfriend Ester Deneus in their Sarasota home early Thursday morning, the station reported.

The couple's five children, ages 1 to 11, were sleeping in the home during the murders, but were not harmed.

Early Monday, the station reports that SWAT teams from the Bradenton Police Department and the Manatee County Sheriff's Department executed search warrants at four Bradenton homes in the search for the three suspects -- Trey Nonombre, Jimmie McNear and Terez Jones.

McNear was arrested without incident, but Nonombre reportedly fled on foot but was apprehended by a K-9 unit. Both face one count of attempted home invasion and two counts of second degree murder.

Police are still on the lookout for Terez Jones. They say he's considered armed and dangerous.

Police say the intruders threw a brick through the front door windows of the victims' home, shot Brooks, 29, near the door, and Deneus, 29, by the couch. Police are interviewing the older children.

"Ester loved her kids. She was a mother of five. She worked. She was a good woman," Bree White, Deneus's friend, told the station.
