SEATTLE -- Police came up empty Thursday evening after getting a tip that a man wanted in connection with a recent double murder was holed up in an apartment in Seattle's Bitter Lake neighborhood.

Last week police identified 30-year-old Ali Muhammed Brown as a suspect in the June 1 shooting that left two people dead in the city's Leschi neighborhood.

The shooting happened around 2:30 a.m. in the 500 block of 29th Ave. South. Witnesses called 911 to report multiple shots fired and when officers arrived a minute later, they found 23-year-old Dwone Anderson-Young and 27-year-old Ahmed Said lying dead in the street. Officers said Anderson-Young and Said were innocent victims.

The first person officers arrested in connection with the case, Matalepuna Malu, remains a person of interest, police said last week. Malu turned himself in to police later Sunday saying he's innocent and wanted to clear his name.

On Thursday, police received information that Brown may be staying at an apartment near North 130th Street and Aurora Avenue North. A cadre of officers arrived at the apartment with a search warrant Thursday evening, but their search turned up empty and Brown remains on the loose.

Brown stands 5'9" tall and weighs roughly 190 pounds. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call the police.
