(Dallas, TX-AP) – A key witness in the Amber Guyger murder trial is dead after being shot Friday night. The Dallas Morning News reports Joshua Brown was a neighbor of Botham Jean and Guyger.
He lived across the hall from Jean and testified about the night he was killed by Guyger. Police were flagged down at a different apartment complex than where Brown lived around 10:30 Friday night.
He had multiple gunshot wounds. Witnesses said they saw a silver four-door sedan speeding out of the parking lot. There is no description of the suspect.
Former Dallas police officer Guyger was convicted last week for murdering Jean and sentenced to ten years in jail. She claimed she thought he was an intruder inside her apartment when she shot and killed him. She was actually in his apartment.
