TSR Updatez: The Dallas Police Department held a press conference today to inform the public that they have identified three men as suspects in the murder of Joshua Brown and now they’re asking for the public’s help in finding them.
Police say Brown was shot as the result of a drug deal gone wrong. One arrest has already been made but police are looking for the two other suspects.
Brown, who was the neighbor of Botham Jean, testified against former Dallas cop Amber Guyger in her murder trial. As a result, Guyger, who fatally shot Jean in his own apartment after claiming she mistook his residence for hers, was convicted in his murder.
Brown was fatally shot two days after Guyger was sentenced to 10 years in prison, prompting people to urge the Dallas Police Department to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding his shooting death.
Many questioned if Brown’s murder was motivated by retaliation and even prompted activists to offer a reward for the identification and capture of the suspect.
DPD officials said today that they believe the three men are responsible in Brown’s shooting death.“We have been working diligently to solve this murer as it is our policy to pursue all murder suspects,” the department tweeted.
“Through the dedicated work of the DPD homicide detectives, we have identified 3 suspects in the murder of Joshua Brown. Jacquerious Mitchell B/M age 20, Michael Mitchell B/M age 32 and Thaddeous Green B/M age 22.”
The department asked for the community’s assistance in capturing the men, whom they listed as fugitives. But police also urged caution, stating that the suspects should be considered armed and dangerous.
The department also took time to address the speculations made about their officers being somehow involved in Brown’s murer.
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. @ChiefHallDPD
