UPDATE -- Columbus police detectives have arrested 19-year-old Adam McCarroll in the case of a murder that happened in a Wendy's drive thru back in January.

Kevin Hughlett, 22, was shot and killed and his friend, 26-year-old David Hawkins was also shot.

Police say McCarroll got into the victim's car after they place their order in the drive thru and shot them both.

At the time, an employee called 9-1-1 saying the shooter was a regular customer.

McCarroll is charged with murder and will be in court Friday morning.
