A Boca Raton, Florida, restaurant worker has been taken into custody and charged with first-degree murder and first-degree attempted murder, after authorities say he stabbed and killed the restaurant owner and another employee while patrons were in the restaurant.

The Palm Beach Post reported on March 14, 2014, that Tilus Lebrun, 42, allegedly stabbed Dimitrios Karaloukas, owner of Jimmy the Greek Taverna, on Thursday, March 13, 2014. Karaloukas was transported to Delray Medical Center but later died of his injuries. Authorities state Lebrun stabbed another employee who was taken to the center in critical condition. The Sun Sentinel reports that Lebrun was angered over a photo posted online March 2, 2014. The photo has not been seen and it is unclear why the photo would cause a violent reaction in Lebrun. Approximately 30 people were in the restaurant at the time of the attack.

Tilus Lebrun is currently held in the Palm Beach Jail without bond.
