    A year and a half after two women were shot and killed inside a Philadelphia home, police have identified a second suspect in their murders.

    On February 24, 2016, police issued an arrest warrant for 27-year-old Ronald Dorsey from the 1100 block of E. Upsal Street. Dorsey is wanted for the shooting deaths of 67-year-old Dollie Evans and 57-year-old Ruby Thomas.

    On August 23, 2014, police responded to a report of gunshots inside a home on the 4700 block of Vista Street. When they arrived they found Evans on the couch suffering from a gunshot wound to her head. They also found Thomas on the floor of a second floor bedroom with an electric cord around her neck and a gunshot wound to her head. Both women were pronounced dead at the scene.

    Three days later, police arrested 25-year-old James Mears in connection to the double homicide. He was charged with murder, robbery, conspiracy and other related offenses.

    After an investigation that lasted more than a year, police determined Dorsey was involved in the murders as well. He is considered armed and dangerous and is known to frequent the area of the 2100 block of Edmund Street. If you have any information on his whereabouts, please call homicide detectives at 215-686-3334/3335 or call 911.
