Three suspects from Alexandria, Louisiana, have been identified in the case of Joshua Brown, Botham Jean‘s neighbor, who was murdered Friday in an alleged drug deal gone wrong in Dallas.
As you may recall, Brown, 28, is the slain witness who is most widely known for testifying in the murder trial of former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger. Brown was shot to death at a separate apartment complex on Friday, just 10 days after taking the stand.
Three suspects have been identified in the murder of Brown, including 20-year-old Jacquerious Mitchell, who was wounded and is in custody at a hospital. He’s expected to be charged with capital murder.
Police say they are still searching for Thaddeous Charles Green, 22, and Michael Diaz Mitchell, 32, who they believe fled the state and are said to be armed and dangerous.
Dallas police allege that the three men traveled from Alexandria to purchase drugs from Brown in the parking lot of a Dallas apartment complex.
Jacquerious Mitchell allegedly confessed that Green got into a physical altercation with Brown and shot Brown twice in the lower body, according to Dallas Assistant Police Chief Avery Moore.
Subsequently, Brown then allegedly shot Jacquerious Mitchell in his chest. Jacquerious Mitchell reportedly fell back into a car and said he heard two gunshots. Green then snatched up Brown’s backpack, and the gun used to shoot Mitchell, and the three suspects sped off, according to Moore.
The suspects were thoughtful enough to drop Mitchell off at a hospital before fleeing, according to reports. “Warrants will be executed for him and the other two suspects for Capital murder,” said Dallas police.
Further, police say they confiscated 12 pounds of marijuana, 149 grams of THC cartridges, and $4,157 in cash from Brown’s apartment after executing a search warrant.
Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson asked the public in a tweet Sunday, to “refrain from speculation” about Brown’s shooting.
