Fund to honor slain Md. trooper

The family of Wesley Brown, the Maryland state trooper who was fatally shot outside a Prince George's County restaurant on June 11, has announced the establishment of a scholarship fund in his honor.

The scholarship fund will provide money for the continuing education of youths involved in the mentoring organization Brown founded.

Brown's family said donations can be made to the TFC W. Brown Memorial Collegiate Youth Scholarship Fund.

Donations can be made online or at any Bank of America branch.

Prince George's County police on Monday announced that two men have been arrested in conection with Brown's murder.

Brown was off-duty, working as a security guard at the Applebee's restaurant in Forestville, when he ejected an unruly patron, authorities said. About 30 minutes later, the man Brown ejected and fatally shot the 24-year-old trooper, police and prosecutors allege.

The man, Cyril Cornelius Williams, 27, has a long history of convictions for selling cocaine and marijuana, and was on parole at the time of the shooting. Williams is being held on a parole violation in Baltimore, and is awaiting a bond hearing in Prince George's on the murder charge, authorities said.
