In an update to a story we reported on last week, two Eugene men have been arrested for a double homicide on the city’s west side.

Eugene Police say 24-year-old Vaughn Pierre Derry Junior and 24-year-old Dejuan Debrail Stevens are now in custody. Both are charged with two counts of murder in the 1st degree, and one count of robbery in the 1st degree, from a violent incident last week.

At 11:14pm on January 19, police officers responded to reports of shots fired at a residence on the 2800 block of West 18th Avenue.

Two people died from gunshot wounds. They’ve been identified as 20-year-old Breanna Dapron, and 31-year-old Dylan Wayne George.
