Rodney Mike, 31, turned himself in Monday for the murder of JaMarco Anthony and shooting of his brother Jerrod Anthony on Sunday.

JaMarco was celebrating his 24th birthday on May 8 at an old VFW Hall in Alton when the party ended in gunfire.

According to the Alton Telegraph, Mike has no criminal history and it's unclear why he may have shot the brothers. Alton police, meanwhile, say they're baffled that none of the 75-100 people at the party have voluntarily stepped forward to assist them in their investigation.

Mike is being held on a $1 million bond.
