Kevin Brown Held in Connection with James Edward Dean Murder

Judge Karen Howze ordered Kevin Brown held Friday pending a preliminary hearing in connection with the shooting death of 19-year-old James Edward Dean.

Police found Dean lying on the sidewalk in the 3100 block of Buena Vista Terrace Southeast around 5 p.m. February 10; he later died at Prince George’s County Hospital.

Arrest documents say that surveillance cameras in the neighborhood of the shooting recorded a male suspect exit the front passenger side of a black SUV and sprint out of view. Moments later, the video captures Dean walking by the camera and a man walking up behind him. The man then shoots Dean multiple times, runs back to the SUV, and the driver speeds away.

A witness to the shooting told police she saw Brown exit the passenger side of a black SUV that evening and walk up the street out of sight. A few minutes later, the witness heard gunshots and saw Brown run back to the SUV with a dark object in his hand.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 28.

Arrest documents are below.
