RUSKIN, Fla. (AP) — Police in Florida are on the lookout for two gunmen who authorities say killed a man and a woman during a home invasion robbery in a suburb of Tampa.

Surveillance cameras recorded the attack from inside and outside the home in Ruskin, and enabled detectives to arrest the alleged lookout. Thirty-two-year-old Samona Louise Ramey was being held without bond Tuesday on first-degree murder charges in the deaths of 24-year-old Alexis Martinez and 33-year-old Juanita Solorzano. No lawyer is listed on her jail record.

A Hillsborough County Sheriff's statement says Ramey went to the home early Wednesday and persuaded Martinez to open the door by asking him for a ride. When he came outside, two men with handguns jumped him and forced him back inside.
