Another hearing date set for Joseph Brown

The case against suspect Joseph Brown continued in court Friday, while the prosecution announced they are still seeking to indict Brown for the alleged killing of Antwan Baker.

Brown was arrested and charged with a double shooting in November 2015 that left Baker dead and another man wounded.

According to police, the two males were found with gunshot wounds at around 11:30 a.m. on the 5300 block of Clay Terrace, NE. Responding medical personnel found Baker, without any signs of life, and transported a surviving male to the hospital.

Brown, 26, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder while armed on the following Tuesday. 

Brown is expected to be in court on May 19, 2017.
