Brown was apparently not the target of the gunfire aimed at her home late at night on April 13.

According to court documents, Flowers sent messages over Facebook calling a relative of the victim a “rat.” The relative and Brown lived together in their home near East 69th Terrace and The Paseo.

Police allegedly found a .40 caliber handgun under the seat of the suspect’s car. Testing found it to be one of the guns used in the shooting.

DNA from Flowers was found on a shell casings at the scene and his cell phone placed him near the crime scene two minutes after the murder, according to court documents.

His bond is set at $250,000 cash only.
