MANATEE -- Detectives with the Manatee County Sheriff's Office have located two persons in connection with the shooting of Linzell Feagin Jr., a 32-year-old Bradenton man who died March 4. He was found shot in Palmetto.
Earlier on Monday, detectives were hoping to make contact with Lamar Fields, 35, and Camille Moses, 36, according to a release. Sheriff's office spokesman Dave Bristow told the Herald the two persons were located in the late afternoon.
"Fields and Moses are not suspects in the shooting but detectives believe they may have information on the case," the sheriff's office said.
Feagin was found with a gunshot wound when deputies were called to RaceTrac at 1730 U.S. 41 in Palmetto at 1 a.m. March 4, according to a release. He was taken to the hospital where he died.

Detectives with the Manatee County Sheriff's Office Homicide Investigative Unit have been working to piece together what happened.
"We've got a pretty good idea of the motive, but we're not prepared to release it at this time because there is a chance that, even after we make an arrest, that we may not know for sure the motive," Bristow told the Herald Monday.
Before Feagin was shot, detectives learned he had been in a car with someone, and that they picked up a third person. They then drove to the 2100 block of Third Avenue East in Palmetto.
"The victim got out of the car out momentarily," Bristow told the Bradenton Herald earlier this month.
The third person got out as well, and Feagin was shot as he was about to get back in the car.
Bristow said both Fields and Moses were located within Manatee County.
