A man charged in the shooting of two Tarpon Springs homeless men is charged with the slaying of a homeless man found at an abandoned gas station in Clearwater.

Myron Farley was arrested and charged with first degree murder in the slaying of John Austin Lloyd, 60, who was found dead outside an abandoned gas station at 1840 Gulf to Bay Blvd Sept. 16.

Farley, 32, already is in jail facing charges of first degree murder and attempted first-degree murder in the Aug. 5 shootings of Brian Kennedy and Larry Schuff in Tarpon Springs.

Forensic evidence linked Farley to the Tarpon Springs shooting as well as the Clearwater shooting, Rob Shaw, Clearwater Police spokesman, said in a release.

Investigators recovered a 9 mm handgun that matched evidence at both crime scenes during a search of Farley's home Sept. 20, Shaw said.
