LL Cool J's Former Bodyguard Shot Dead

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

was encountered."

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.
