Benny and Braden Brown were shot on 1/19/14 at approx. 1230 hours at Main St and Rome Ave while standing outside. The shooters were in a white car. They drove by the two brothers and shot them. Both brothers were struck from the gun fire and transported to a local hospital where Benny Brown succumbed to his injuries. Braden Brown is expected to survive and is in stable condition. The investigation is still very active and police do not think it is a random act of violence, but a situation that arose from an on-going dispute.
