Arrest warrants issued in Joshua Brown murder; police alleged it was drug deal gone bad

DALLAS – Dallas police have issued two arrest warrants for the murder of Joshua Brown in what police say was a drug deal gone bad.

Brown, who was a featured witness in the Amber Guyger murder trial, was shot to death at the Atera apartments on Cedar Springs Road on Friday night. The 28-year-old was previously Botham Jean’s neighbor at a different apartment complex. He testified about what he heard the night of Jean’s murder.

Dallas police are searching for Thaddeus Green, 22, and Michael Mitchell, 32. A third suspect, Jacquerious Mitchell, 20, is in custody and gave police his version of events from the night. 

Jacquerious said all three of the men travelled from Alexandria, Lousiana to buy drugs from Brown on Friday.

When the three arrived, a “physical altercation” happened between Green and Brown, according to Jacquerious. That culminated in Brown shooting Jacquerious once in the chest. Then, Brown was shot twice by Green in the lower body.

Green took the gun and Brown’s backpack, police said, and fled the scene as Michael drove away.

Jacquerious remains hospitalized and is in police custody. Dallas police detectives are in Louisiana searching for the other two suspects.

Police searched Brown’s apartment and found 12 lbs. of marijuana, 149 grams of THC cartridges and $4,157 in cash.

Dallas police chastised local leaders who inflamed people about potential connections between Brown’s death and his testimony in the Guyger trial.

“The rumors shared by community leaders that Mr. Brown’s death was related to the Amber Guyger trial and that DPD was responsible are false. We encourage those leaders to be mindful because their words may jeapordize the integrity of the city of Dallas and DPD,” the department said.

I am extremely proud of my baby brother, Brandt, for accepting this award of ethical courage from the Center for Law Enforcement Ethics. This award presented an opportunity to implore this institution and others to encourage diverse leadership that can model inclusion and restraint. To quote Brandt, “I ask that you remember my brother (Botham), my example of ethical leadership, a young black male that was perceived as a threat by one of your own. And when you remember him, I want you to ask yourself, what are you doing to ensure there will be no other families like mine – no other little brothers that have to model ethical leadership in forgiveness of a cop whose lack of training and discipline caused them to carelessly take the life of another”. #BeLikeBo #Iammybrotherskeeper #itsonus #BothamJean #Bothamshemjean #letitrise

According to NBCDFW During his acceptance speech Tuesday, Jean that he never meant for his words to Guyger to be heard worldwide, but that he thought after the verdict and sentencing she needed to be forgiven and that, similarly, he needed to offer that forgiveness.

“I never intended for the statement that I made to the person who murdered my brother to receive such international recognition,” Jean said. “After being found guilty by a jury of her peers, sentenced under the law, Miss Guyger needed to be forgiven and I needed to be free from the burden of unforgiveness.” Read More Here
