The Major Case Squad is investigating two murders in Pine Lawn that may be connected. Friends and family of the second victim say his son is the possible link.
On Wednesday, a black male in his late teens/early twenties was found inside a home on Ravenwood in Pine Lawn with a single gunshot wound to his head. Soon after police discovered the body they took a person of interest into custody and brought several other people for questioning to headquarters. One of those people was the 17-year-old son of the second victim.
Investigators say they released the 17-year-old to his father this afternoon. A few hours later, 47-year-old Bryant Brooks was dead.
The investigating is ongoing.
