Man arrested in murder of Daniel Watkins

Staff Report


Police arrested 20-year-old Michael D. Brown of Youngstown in the aggravated murder of a Boardman man who was found shot in a Loveland Road driveway last week.

Daniel Watkins, 19, was found slumped over the steering wheel of his car the night of July 25 with several gunshot wounds to his chest. Watkins died on the way to the hospital shortly before midnight.

Witnesses said they saw a man running from the scene. Police said last week they had leads but no suspect.

Police said Brown did not resist arrest and was taken to the Mahoning County jail.

I hope and pray that Michael Brown will be seen as a very young man who may or may NOT have committed a crime. I have known him all of his life. He has had issues since his father was killed on his motorcycle, Michael Brown Sr. Please have an open mind about him as you do the victim. Nana

Scoopie, I am all for having an open mind, but that does not mean that we can excuse the fact that Michael Brown may have killed this other young man. And if he did, we can not use the death of his father as a reason for why he did what he did. There are many people who grow up without a father, and they don't kill anyone. I am an example of that. There are many children who have a father that died, and though it is a horrible tragedy that leaves an everlasting scar, they don't kill people. By the time you are twenty years old, you know right from wrong, and if you choose wrong, you have to suffer the consequences.
