Police are looking for a suspect in a grisly double murder outside a Bronx motel.

42-year-old Joseph Kernizan is suspected of shooting 2-people early Saturday morning.

Officers responded to a call of shots fired shortly after 3 a.m. at the Holiday Motel.

The motel is located along the New England Thruway in Eastchester.

38-year-old Tracy Bennett of Elmhurst, an 50-year-old Wayne Hamilton of Milwaukee were both found shot in the head in the parking lot.

Hamilton is reportedly a reggae singer who goes by the name of "Captain Barkey".

Police say this was not a murder-suicide, and that they are looking for a gunman who they believe fled the scene.
