Deputy Chief Avery Moore says Jacquerious Mitchell is in custody in the hospital while the other suspects are believed to be in Louisiana. He says, Jacquerious claims that is was drug deal gone bad and that when he arrived Brown told him to get back in the car and shot him in the chest. He alleges that two more shots were heard after that implying that Brown was hit.
Officials say a big stash of marijuana was found inside Joshua Brown’s apartment after he was shot to death last Friday.
Joshua Brown was a witness during Amber Guyger’s murder trial last month. Guyger was given ten years in prison for killing Botham Jean inside his apartment last year.
Brown was scheduled to testify in a civil suit against the Dallas Police Department this week.
Police say Brown’s death had noting to do with the Guyger trial and criticized community activists for passing along rumors suggesting otherwise.
