After undergoing jihadist training in California, Ali Muhammad Brown, 30, found his victims by using ‘Grindr’ – an application popular among Gays for hooking up. Following his Islamic faith which calls for executing homosexuals, Brown murdered Ahmed Said, 27, and Dwone Anderson-Young, 23, in cold blood.
Detectives say Said was shot multiple times in the face at close range and also in the back, as was Anderson-Young. There was no evidence of a struggle, the victims were not armed, and there`s no evidence it was motivated by robbery, drugs or any other crime. While no motive has been listed in the charges against Brown, police believe the two men were attacked simply because their sexual orientation offended Brown’s Muslim beliefs.
In the charging documents, police said they linked Brown to the slayings after finding his fingerprints and three spent 9mm shell casings inside Said’s car. The suspect is still at large.
