Nigel Brown Wiki – Nigel Brown Biography
Nigel Brown was a Georgia boy who is dead after police. He was shot in the head while sleeping in his room.
APD said Tuesday that area businesses donated just over 5,000 dollars to add to the existing $5,000 reward offered by Crime Stoppers. Police said all donations would go to the award for information leading to the arrest of those involved in the case.
He was 9 years old.
Nigel Brown Shot in Head
Gunfire broke out in a residential Albany neighbourhood at around 11 p.m. Sunday, while Nigel was sound asleep. A stray bullet entered Nigel’s room and struck him in the head. When his mother heard gunshots coming from a car outside, she ran to the child’s room and found him unresponsive.
News 10 reports that Nigel was pronounced dead at the scene after first responders arrived. Two other children and the victim’s great-grandfather were all in the home at the time. They were uninjured.
On Monday, Police Chief Michael Persley said it’s too early to discern if the shooting was random or targeted.
‘The family of Nigel Brown is dealing, grieving, and suffering because some coward on the streets of Albany took his life,” Persley said.’I say coward because the loss of one life is too many, but definitely, this was a senseless killing.”
“We have about two generations here in the city who are lost, and we need the community’s help not only to bring people to justice, but we need the community’s help to get these people on track.”
Persely added that he expects the shooter to be charged with felony murder. So far, no arrests have been made.
