Alleged gang boss accused of ordering two DeKalb murders arrested


Malcolm "Dot" Brown, a reputed Bloods gang boss who had been out on $75,000 bond in the deaths of two young women, was arrested Thursday after missing court.

Brown, who faces a slew of charges, including murder, was supposed to be arraigned in DeKalb County Jan. 8 but didn’t show. Court records show the notice of the hearing sent to him was returned by the post office.

His missed court date is the latest in the saga of a case that’s lumbered on since May 19, 2014, when Sonia Williams and Shaniqua Camacho were gunned down outside Decatur. Prosecutors and the court have disagreed over which evidence should be admitted on the gang aspects of the case.

As the state alleges, Brown ordered several men, who are also charged in the case, to kill the two women after an argument with Williams. Camacho has been described as a bystander, who was an old friend of Williams and didn’t know anyone else involved.

To Camacho’s parents’ horror, Brown was released on a  bond order issued by Superior Court Judge Linda Hunter in 2015.

The victim’s mother has said she moved away from the Atlanta area, in part because she couldn’t stop looking over her shoulder after his release.

Brown, a Smyrna resident, was arrested at a Cobb County apartment complex without incident, the DeKalb sheriff’s office said.

Hunter’s bench warrant says Brown has no bond now.
