Ali Muhammed Brown

Seattle police have identified a second suspect in Sunday’s double homicide in the Central District.

Police identified the man as Ali Muhammed Brown, 30, and say he is thought to be armed and dangerous.

Brown, a black man, is 5-feet-9 and 190 pounds, with brown eyes. He is believed to be transient and frequents the South King County area.

If you see Brown, or know his whereabouts, call 911 or the Seattle police homicide tip Line at 206-233-5000 immediately.

Detectives are still working to identify other possible suspects in the case.

Dwone Anderson-Young, 23, and Ahmed Said, 27, were fatally shot in the 500 block of 29th Avenue South just before 2:30 a.m. on Sunday. One man, Matalepuna Malu, 26, has already been arrested in connection with the deaths .

Seattle police and Mayor Ed Murray said Wednesday that the slayings could have been a hate crime, although the motive remains unclear. Anderson-Young’s mother said he was gay.

In March 2012, Brown pleaded guilty to communication with a minor for immoral purposes and was sentenced to a year in jail. He had initially been charged with first-degree rape of a minor after Kent police say he sexually assaulted a young child several times.
