Ali Muhammad Brown, charged with murder in double homicide case, at large in New Jersey

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

The suspect in a double homicide last month, Ali Muhammad Brown, 30, may have targeted the Gay men he allegedly killed by meeting them through the personal meet-up mobile app Grindr, according to court documents released Wednesday.

Brown was charged with two counts of aggravated first-degree murder - a crime that could come with the death penalty, if convicted.

Ahmed Said, 27, and Dwone Anderson-Young, 23, were killed early on the morning of June 1 near 29th Ave. S. and S. King St., and according to Senior Deputy Prosecutor Wyman Yip, 'It is evident that the murders were premeditated and unprovoked and part of a common scheme or plan.'

Both victims were shot in the head and there was no evidence of a struggle that preceded the killings.

Yip wrote in charging documents, 'The evidence from the crime scene, Said's vehicle, and the autopsies suggest that the victims were essentially executed.'

Yip said there was no evidence that the killings were motivated by a robbery, drugs or another crime.

The victims had been with friends at R Place located at Boylston Ave. & E. Pine St. Said told the group he was meeting a 'friend' outside the club when they left. One of Said's friends had the feeling that Said hadn't met the 'friend' before, because while Said was at R Place, he was constantly on his phone and appeared to be texting on Grindr.

The group left the bar at closing time and crossed Boylston Ave., to meet with Said's friend; but the man looked unfriendly and out of place.

One of the friends in the group later told police he was 'creeped out' by the man who was later identified as Brown.

According to two witnesses, they saw Brown leave with the victims in Said's car. The shooting deaths occurred about 2:20 a.m.

After the victims were killed, Said's gold 2001 Mitsubishi Gallant they had been riding in was found in South Seattle. There was an exorbitant amount of blood in the passenger seat. Brown's palm print was found on the interior rear driver's side window. Spent 9 mm shell casings that matched the casings found at the Leschi crime scene were also found in the abandoned car.

Brown's mother told police shortly after the shooting she had purchases a 9 mm semiautomatic pistol and that it was missing.

Neither Said nor Anderson-Young had a criminal history and were not armed.

Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O'Toole said Wednesday morning that Brown is believed to be in New Jersey, where he has ties and is wanted for a weekend armed robbery and attempted carjacking.

On Sunday, a 46-year-old man in Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey, was robbed at gunpoint in front of a coffee shop. Police said it was Brown who took the man's wallet and keys before fleeing on foot. The victim wasn't hurt.

Brown is also wanted for failing to register as a sex offender.

An Ocean County judge issued a $500,000 arrest warrant for Brown and police say Brown is familiar with the East Orange area of New Jersey.

The station also reports that Brown is wanted in a third homicide in Washington, but it's not clear which case.
