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 testified at the murder trial of a former Dallas police officer, 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 fighting 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 Officer Amber Guyger to 10 years in prison for killing her upstairs neighbor, Botham Jean.
