The King County Prosecutor's Office has filed two counts of aggravated first degree murder against 29-year-old Ali Muhammad Brown.

Brown is accused of killing Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young in Seattle's Leschi neighborhood on June 1.

The charges bring more details of the double homicide to light, explaining that the victims met up the night of the shooting at RPlace, a gay nightclub on Capitol Hill.

A friend of Anderson-Young told police that Said had planned to meet someone outside the club that night who he didn't know. A second friend confirmed that Said talked about meeting someone later and had been on his phone texting much of the night.

The first friend said he was "creeped out" by the "friend" that Said and Anderson-Young met outside and the second friend said the man "didn't look particularly friendly."

One of the friends later identified that person as the suspect in a group of photos at police headquarters.

Police say that Said, Anderson-Young and Brown drove away from the club in a car the two victims were killed in. Officers were able to tie Brown to killings with his fingerprints and three spent 9mm shell casings. The shell casings match a 9mm semiautomatic pistol that was owned by the mother of Brown's children and was missing, the charges explain.

The charging documents state the suspect "essentially executed two people" and called the killings "unprovoked."

Calling Brown a danger to the community, the King County Prosecutor's Office requested that the suspect be held without bail.

Brown is currently at-large.
