Friends and family gathered in Harlem Thursday to say goodbye to a Mount Vernon businessman who was gunned down in his car last week.
Mourners packed the Metropolitan Community United Methodist Church to remember the life of 47-year-old Glenn Brown. Friends talked about a man who was well respected and admired. The church was in the heart of the community where Brown was a mentor and entrepreneur as a builder and developer.
Police believe Brown was targeted and say they are close to an arrest. Meanwhile, a Mount Vernon police detective was shot in the foot with his own gun Wednesday while questioning Brown?s partner, 33-year-old Michael Mitchell. Mitchell allegedly attacked the detective and in an ensuing scuffle the gun went off. Mitchell is charged with attempted murder.
