State troopers, sheriff’s deputies, Pickton-Pine Forest Volunteer firefighters and Emergency Medical Services crews were dispatched to the scene. 

Brown was a 2001 graduate of Como-Pickton High School. He had earned a bachelor’s of business administration in accounting from Steven F. Austin University and was employed as an  internal auditor with City National Bank at the time of his death.

Services were to be held at 2 p.m. today at First Baptist Church in Winnsboro. Arrangements were under the direction of Beaty Funeral Home.
