Twins At Center Of Killing Investigation

CHANDLER, Ariz., Aug. 9 (UPI) — Prosecutors in Arizona are trying to determine which identical twin brother allegedly fired a fatal shot at a nightclub when both were there, authorities said.

Several witness identified Orlando Nembhard, originally from Yonkers, N.Y., as the man they saw brandish a pistol in February outside a crowded Chandler nightclub and fire on a young club-goer who later died, The New York Times reported Monday.

But as prosecutors prepared their case, it was learned Nembhard’s identical twin brother Brandon was also at the nightclub in the early hours of Feb. 12, the time of the shooting.

Lacking any forensic evidence pointing to the gunman’s identity, police said, it was down to the witnesses.

“Every investigation, as simple as it may look at face value, has certain levels of complexity,” Detective Seth Tyler of the Chandler Police Department said. “When you respond to a scene like this, where you have a few hundred people who may have witnessed the crime, and people are saying different things, that complicates it.

“Then, to top it all off, you have twins who were both there.”

The brothers moved from New York to Arizona with their mother about five years ago, authorities said.

Complicating the case is the fact police have not found the murder weapon.

“The evidence and witness statements that we’ve gathered at the scene led to a grand jury indictment of Orlando Nembhard,” Tyler said. “But just because he was arrested doesn’t mean we’re not continuing the investigation. It’s still very much going on, and everything is still on the table.”
