Brown is currently being held in the Fulton County Jail on charges of murder, aggravated battery, elder abuse, possession of a knife during the commission of a felony and hijacking a motor vehicle. We first obtained his mugshot during Channel 2 Action News This Morning.
Investigators say Brown walked into the gated community, but it is unclear how he was able to get past security. The car was tracked and recovered in DeKalb County.
Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens said in a news conference on Monday night that Brown was spotted by a citizen who then called police, leading to his capture.
“The son came home to visit his mom for the holidays,” Deputy Chief Charles Hampton said. “This is not a way that a family should have to spend their holiday season, mourning and grieving the death of a loved one.”
Businesses also told Channel 2′s Larry Spruill, they have had incidents with Brown.
“Yes, we are aware, but that’s still under investigation, as far as what the encounters, that we had with him prior to this incident,” said Hampton.
Friends and family members of Bowles have also set up a GoFundMe, all funds raised are going directly to the Atlanta Humane Society, an organization she loved.
