ATLANTA — A Roswell man arrested for the fatal shooting of a woman in Midtown Atlanta Monday morning is facing additional charges after he allegedly assaulted another inmate.

Raylon Browning, 39, of Roswell was initially arrested April 3 in connection of the death of Trinh Huynh, a 40-year-old lawyer working in Atlanta.

Browning allegedly ran up to Huynh during rush hour traffic at 7:40 a.m. and shot her multiple times at a busy crosswalk. He was caught and jailed later that night after he ran a red light in Cobb County.

Inside the car, police found what they said could be the gun used in that morning’s shooting.

According to police, Browning was also wanted for stabbing two other people April 2, the day before.

Browning soon racked up another charge April 4 for simple assault in addition to charges for murder and two counts of aggravated assault.

According to the arrest affidavit, Browning struck the other inmate four times in the face, creating lacerations, before Browning was subdued with a shock from a stun gun. He was then placed in a padded cell.

The attack was for “no apparent reason,” one officer noted.

Browning was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital hours later when another officer found him “biting his left arm and spitting blood out of his mouth.”

Because of his hospitalization, Browning was unable to attend his first appearance April 5.
