A man who was shot to death on Thursday as under
cover officers tried to serve a warrant on him in Greensboro, North Carolina
was a former bodyguard for LL Cool J, authorities
said. Garfield Brown, 30, was a prime suspect in the murder of 27 year old Kelvin
Parks, from Omaha, Nebraska, who was found dead last year in New Haven, Connecticut.
The police would not elaborate on the shooting of Brown, saying only that "resistance
Parks allegedly met Brown in a movie theater
and later in the evening, Brown allegedly lured him into a dark lot and robbed
him. "Parks was found lying in a parking lot with a gunshot wound to the
abdomen," New Haven police Sgt. Christopher Mahon said.
Brown had a previous conviction for manslaughter
and had served time in Florida, North Carolina and California. He was also wanted
in connection with a murder in New York. Brown was profiled last month on America’s
Most Wanted. Authorities are still investigating why Brown was in North Carolina.
