Seattle man suspected of gay hate killings tracked down in New Jersey

LAST UPDATED // Monday, 21 July 2014 16:33 Written by // Andrew Shaw

A Seattle man has been taken into custody in New Jersey on suspicion of killing two men he met at a Seattle gay club.

Ali Muhammed Brown is thought to have met the men through a gay hook up app.

The 29-year-old homeless man is expected to be extradited back to Washington state where he faces two counts of aggravated murder for allegedly shooting Dwone Anderson-Young, 23, and Ahmed Said, 27, execution-style on June 1.

Their bodies were found in the street outside the home of one of the victims only minutes after leaving a bar together.

The motive behind their violent death, described by prosecutors as “extremely violent, senseless and seemingly unprovoked", is not clear, but detectives are looking at the killings as a possible hate crime because Anderson-Young and Said were gay.
