The man accused of killing an Atlanta attorney in Midtown and shooting two construction workers in a two-day crime spree was indicted Wednesday on murder, assault and weapons charges, according to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office.

Raylon Browning is accused of killing Trinh Huynh as she walked along the intersection of Peachtree Street and Peachtree Place early April 3. Browning allegedly shot Huynh from behind. Witnesses say they heard three shots and saw Huynh fall to the ground. Browning was later seen on surveillance leaving the area.

The day before the deadly shooting, Browning allegedly stabbed two other people on the 1100 block of West Peachtree Street. The victims, who knew Browning, identified him to police. Browning was a contractor working in the area.

Cobb County police arrested Browning after he ran a red light two days after the crimes but didn’t know he was a suspect in the deadly shooting and the two stabbings. Officials later found out he was wanted in Atlanta.

Police have not released a motive in the shooting, but they believe Hyunh was targeted.

Browning is also accused of punching an inmate four times in the face while in the Fulton County jail and ignoring officer commands. A deputy used his Taser on Browning, who was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Browning faces a simple battery charge in that incident.
