Police say a man wanted for a double homicide in Georgia turned himself in to Pennsylvania authorities. Phu Thien Tran is in Lancaster County Prison on a fugitive-from-justice charge, with bail set at $1 million.

Manor Township Police Sgt. Jim Alexander says Tran showed up at the station just before 1 p.m. on Tuesday.

A computer check of the 22-year-old Tennessee resident turned up a warrant for the shooting of two teenagers in Catoosa County, Ga.

Tran is accused in the fatal shooting on Saturday of two teenage boys, one 13 and the other 17 years old. Georgia officials said more than 30 shots were fired at a house after a scuffle over a debt.

Alexander says Tran had stopped in Lancaster while traveling through the area with his brother.
