The man who is suspected of killing two young gay men in Seattle has been arrested following a cross-country man-hunt that ended in New Jersey.

Two men in their twenties were shot in the head and killed in Seattle after a night out with friends in June.

30-year-old Ali Muhammed Brown was charged with the shootings, but had been on the run, until police in New Jersey managed to capture him just days ago.

Initial autopsies suggest that the victims were ‘essentially executed’ said Senior Deputy Prosecutor Wyman Yip.

Prosecutors say the two victims, Ahmed Said, 27 and Dwone Anderson-Young 23, were targeted and lured via a social app.

Brown was arrested in New Jersey, without incident.

If convicted of the two counts of aggravated first-degree murder, Brown could face the death penalty.

‘It is evident that the murders were premeditated and unprovoked and part of a common scheme or plan’ noted Senior Deputy Prosecutor Wyman Yip in the charging documents.
