Suspect May Have Used Grindr To Target Two Seattle Murder Victims: VIDEO
Ali Muhammed Brown, a radical jihadist charged with killing Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young in Seattle on June 1, may have targeted his victims using Grindr. Brown is also wanted for failing to register as a sex offender.
NY Daily News reports that Brown has since been seen in his home state of New Jersey, allegedly committing an armed robbery.
According to Q13Fox.com, 30-year-old Brown met up with Said and Anderson-Young after they left gay bar R Place on the night of May 31.
Police say Brown allegedly shot his victims after driving to Anderson-Young’s house. Brown is thought to have then stolen Said’s car which was later found abandoned in south Seattle.
In the charging documents, police said they linked Brown to the slayings after finding his fingerprints and three shell casings inside Said’s car.
Although a motive for the murders has not been listed, Q13Fox.com reports that Brown underwent jihadist training in April and that Said and Anderson-Young were targeted because their sexual orientation offended Brown’s radical Muslim beliefs.
