Brown fled from officers and was later apprehended by a police dog, Hartwick said. Evidence was also found that Brown had been driving a vehicle stolen in an armed carjacking in Illinois. 

Though no charges have been filed in the attempted murder, police have connected Brown to the shooting of a 41-year-old man on the 1900 block of Pike Drive on Sept. 8, Hartwick said.

Police located evidence of the shooting at the address after a vehicle came to the Fitchburg Police Department with a passenger who had been shot. An investigation revealed a gunman walked up to a parked car and shot the 41-year-old while he was in a passenger seat. 

Brown is currently in the custody of the Department of Corrections under an armed robbery charge.
