Police continue to hunt for more suspects involved in last weekend’s gun battle that ended the life of 11-year-old Ephraim Brown, after one of the men accused of the crime, Gregory Sappleton, made a quick court appearance yesterday.


Sappleton was remanded in custody until Aug. 7. Few details are known about the case police are building against Sappleton, 21, and his co-accused, Akiel Eubank, 20, except police allege the two drew their guns and started firing at each other early Sunday as a birthday party was winding down.
