Albany --  A love triangle likely led to the murder of a Pizza Hut employee.

Albany police arrested two men Tuesday night, and charged them with murder. Twenty-year-old Deyale Johnson and 22-year-old Nevarro Brinson are in the Dougherty County jail.

Both men are lance corporals in the Marine Reserves assigned to a detachment at MCLB Albany.

Investigators say Johnson and the victim, 18-year-old Damarcus Wadell, were dating the same woman. Police say Johnson and Brinson gunned down Wadell in the Pizza Hut parking lot on Dawson Road Sunday night.

"There were a lot of leads that they were working. We were able to determine the girl was or had been involved with two individuals, so we start leaning towards that," said APD Lt. James Williams.

Police wouldn't say which man pulled the trigger.

We'll have more on this story tonight.
