Deputies responded March 12 to a shooting along Hwy. 22 in Darrow. Deputies reportedly found Brown deceased from multiple gunshot wounds. His sibling was also struck by gunfire and was transported to an area hospital.

The suspect reportedly turned himself in March 17 accompanied by family after an arrest warrant was obtained.
