Suspects sought in fatal shooting

September 19, 1990

C Police are seeking two suspects in connection with the fatal shooting of a 50-year-old Baltimore man in a robbery that netted his assailants $7.

Yesterday, police circulated a composite drawing of one of the suspects, whose first name is believed to be "Eric" and who is considered armed and dangerous.

"Eric" was described as light-skinned, between 16 and 20, 5-foot-6, with a slim build.

Police had no composite of the second suspect, who they believe is dark-skinned. He may have a slim build and may be between 16 and 20.

About 9 p.m. Sept. 10, Francois Browne, of the 2100 block of McCulloh St., was approached from behind by two youths as he walked in the 1200 block of W. North Ave., police said.

Witnesses told police that the youths reached into Browne's rear pockets, then one of them pulled out a handgun and shot Browne three times in the head.

Police recovered four .25-caliber handgun casings on the ground near Browne.

Browne, who was a supervisor for the Learning Center on West 24th Street, died of his wounds at 12:15 p.m. the next day at the Shock-Trauma Unit in Baltimore.

Anyone with information about the case should call the homicide unit at 396-2100.
