He and another agent had just bought four shots of liquor from a filling station attendant. When they attempted to arrest him, the man opened fire with a .25 caliber pistol, wounding both agents.

Despite his wounds, the other agent was able to place Agent Brown in their vehicle and drove him to the local hospital. Agent Brown died while en route to the hospital.

The suspect was arrested and convicted of Agent Brown's murder. He was sentenced to 10 years to life in prison.

Agent Brown was survived by his wife and two children.

This man was my grandfather. He was killed 3 days before my mother's 7th birthday. I never got to meet him, but I learned to love him through the many stories my mother and my grandmother shared with me.
