Fatal Incident Summary

Location: GA   USA   Sat. Dec. 16, 2000
Summary: Sheriff-elect Brown was shot and killed in an ambush style attack organized by the incumbent sheriff he had beaten in the recent election.

The sheriff-elect had just returned home from a celebration with family and friends, when he was shot 11 times while in his front yard. Sheriff-elect Brown had vowed to end corruption in the sheriff's department during his campaign for sheriff. After a long investigation by state and federal law enforcement agencies, three suspects were arrested, including the former sheriff, and a former sheriff's deputy. The former sheriff was later convicted of arranging the murder as well as multiple counts of theft and racketeering.

Sheriff-elect Brown had been with the DeKalb County Department of Public Safety for 22 years, and was scheduled to be sworn in as Sheriff three days after his death. He is survived by his wife and five children and is buried in Dawn Memorial Park, Decatur, Dekalb County, Georgia.p
