Police say three are suspected of killing witness at Dallas officer’s trial


DALLAS – Three Louisiana men are suspected in the killing of a witness who testified at the murder trial of a former Dallas police officer, authoritie­s said Tuesday, cautioning that the killing had nothing at all to do with that trial or case.

The suspects – Jacqueriou­s Mitchell, 20; Michael Mitchell, 32; and Thaddeous Green, 22 – are from Alexandria, Louisiana, and investigat­ors believe they were in Dallas to buy drugs from Joshua Brown, Assistant Chief Avery Moore said at a news conference.

Moore said Jacqueriou­s Mitchell told police that Brown shot him in the chest after Green and Brown began fighting during the drug deal, and that Green then shot Brown twice.

Jacqueriou­s Mitchell is in a Dallas hospital in “critical condition,” police said. Neither Michael Mitchell, who is Jacqueriou­s’ uncle, nor Thaddeous Green are in custody.

The announceme­nt comes after days of speculatio­n regarding Brown’s death, which happened two days after a jury sentenced former police Officer Amber Guyger to 10 years in prison for killing her upstairs neighbor, Botham Jean.
