Cops: Former Riviera CRA director shot by wife

The former Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency director was shot in the head by his wife who told deputies the couple was arguing and the rest was a “blur,” the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies arrested Lawanda Brown for the attempted murder of her husband, Tony Brown, Monday afternoon.

The couple now lives in Fernandina Beach and runs a consulting company, T. Brown Consulting Group. Brown served on the Riviera Beach CRA from 2010-2016.

Deputies arrived at the Brown’s home and found Tony Brown, 58, lying in a pool of blood from a gunshot to the back of his head. Fire Rescue air-lifted Brown to UF-Health Hospital in Jacksonville with critical injuries.

Lawanda Brown said they were working on a project for their consulting company when Brown asked her to search in Google for a project template, a sheriff’s office report states. While searching, she said she could hear in the tone of her husband’s voice that he was unhappy with her. She said remembers him walking out of the office and then her memory is a blur.

Deputies reported finding a .38 caliber revolver in the bedroom of their home. 

Lawanda Brown was booked into the Nassau County Jail. Her bond was set at $500,000.
