OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Three Hurricane Katrina evacuees are suspects in a double homicide in Oklahoma City.

Police say Kendrick Simpson, Jonathan Dalton and Latango Robertson are being held without bond on first-degree murder complaints in the early Monday morning shooting deaths of Glen Palmer and Anthony Jones.

The hometowns of the suspects were not immediately available. Police say all three were living in Norman and are evacuees from Hurricane Katrina which devastated the Gulf Coast.

Sergeant Charles Phillips says Palmer and Jones were killed and another man wounded after fighting with Simpson, Dalton and Robertson at a nightclub.
