Two teens, ages 14 and 16 were found shot to death in the Palm Bay “Compound” area Christmas evening.
The family of 14-year-old Jeremiah Brown released the following statement.
“Jeremiah had a short but well-lived life. The second child of five children. Isaiah, Jeremiah and Elijah were called the Bible brothers. Jeremiah was very kind, loving and respectful. We as a Christian family trust God for a speedy resolution for this case. We pray for the person or persons that committed this heinous act. Buying a gun is easier than buying a pack of gum from a grocery store. Jeremiah Brown came from a family of love not hate. He was on the family prayer line every third Sunday youth in action,” the message read.
