State v. Ali Muhammad Brown
Defendant Accused in Two Seattle Killings Facing New Murder Charge: A man charged in the shooting deaths of two men in Seattle’s Leschi neighborhood in June is facing a new charge in connection with the murder of a Skyway man in April. The defendant, Ali Muhammad Brown, 29, was charged today with Aggravated Murder in the First Degree for the alleged fatal shooting of Leroy Henderson, 30, on April 27 in Skyway. Brown was charged last month with two counts of Aggravated Murder in the First Degree for the shooting deaths of Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young on June 1 in the Leschi neighborhood.
The defendant was arrested last month in New Jersey, where he is also facing a murder charge. Brown is accused in the fatal shooting of Brendan Tevlin, 19, in New Jersey in June. “The investigation in King County and New Jersey reveals that this defendant is responsible for a series of murders, none of which appear to be provoked, and all of which show an extreme level of violence,” said King County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg. “We are in communication with the prosecutors in Essex County regarding their murder and robbery charges,” he said. “I expect that eventually Brown will come back to King County to face the three aggravated murder charges we have filed, but precisely when that will be remains unclear at this point.” If convicted as charged, aggravated murder carries two possible punishments, either the death penalty or life in prison without release.
