News : 2 Gay Men Killed After Using Social App
Hey guys, last week 2 gay men were killed through after meeting their murderer through a social app. Ali Muhammad Brown, a suspect in the murders of two gay men in Seattle on June 5, may have met his victims on a social networking app like Grindr, reports KIRO TV .
Ali has been on the run after being charged with the murders of 23-year-old Dwone Anderson-Young and 27-year-old Ahmed Said while the men were walking home from R Place, a gay nightclub at Boylston Avenue and East Pine Street on Capitol Hill, Seattle.
Both victims were shot in the head and there was no evidence or a struggle that preceded the killings. Senior Deputy Prosecutor Wyman Yip said there was no evidence that the killings were motivated by a robbery, drugs or another crime. The shooting deaths happened about 2:20 a.m. — less than 17 minutes after two witnesses saw Brown leave with the victim in Said’s car.
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 crime scene were also found in the abandoned car.
Police say the suspect is also known in East Orange, New Jersey, and is wanted in Ocean City on a $500,000 arrest warrant, in addition to other possible crimes in New Jersey and Washington. Brown has been charged two counts of aggravated first-degree murder; if convicted, he could face the death penalty.
