Brown Homicide Update

Richmond Police investigators are again asking for the public’s help to identify the man who shot Michael K. Brown Jr. to death last month.

Investigators are releasing the below updated photos because the suspect who had an altercation with the victim that night was last seen wearing the same style shirt.

There is still a $6,000 reward for information leading to arrest and conviction in this case. Anyone with any information about this person or this incident is asked to call Detective Richard Edwards at (804) 646-3914, the Richmond the Department’s Tipline at (804) 514-TIPS or Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.

Citizens can also text Crime Stoppers at 274637 first using the word “ITip” followed by your tip. Both Crime Stoppers methods are anonymous.

At approximately 12:51 a.m. on March 13, Brown Jr., 20, of Glen Allen, was found suffering from a gunshot wound at 4th and East Main streets. He later died at the hospital.

The motive for this crime appears to have stemmed from an argument inside nearby Club Aurora earlier that evening.

The suspect is described as a black male with a light complexion who is approximately 5’10” to 6’01” tall. He has a slim to medium build; is 19 -25 years old and has very distinctive large spaces between his teeth. Witnesses also described him as having wavy hair kept in a short, close-cut style.

The suspect was patronizing Club Aurora at 401 E. Grace St. with several other individuals and was last seen a white t-shirt with the word “LEVI” on the front of it (like the photos below), dark pants and a black skull cap. Later in the night, he was also seen wearing a black hooded jacket.

He was also seen in a white-colored sedan.
