The Dallas Police Department released a mugshot of one of two suspects arrested in connection with the murder of Joshua Brown, a key witness in the Amber Guyger murder trial.
Police say Jacquerious Mitchell, 20, is one of three men who drove more than 300 miles from Alexandria, Louisiana to buy 12 pounds of marijuana from Brown on Friday, Oct. 4.
The men met Brown in the parking lot of his upscale apartment complex at the 4600 block of Cedar Springs Road on Friday night.
An argument ensued and Brown shot Mitchell in the chest before one of the men shot Brown twice, killing him. Mitchell is under police guard in an intensive care unit at a Dallas hospital.
Brown, 28, was killed just 10 days after he testified in Guyger’s murder trial. The former Dallas cop was convicted of murdering 26-year-old accountant Botham Jean in his own apartment. Guyger is serving 10 years in prison.
Mitchell’s uncle, 32-year-old Michael Mitchell, pictured top right, is also in police custody. A third suspect, 22-year-old Thaddeous Green, pictured bottom right remains at large.
Investigators served a search warrant on Brown’s apartment and found 12 pounds of marijuana and over $4,100 in cash.
Brown was previously sentenced to 18 months in prison for felony drug possession in 2016. He feared for his life after he was shot in the foot outside a nightclub in 2017. A man who was with him was shot and killed.
The gunman who shot Brown and his friend is free on bond.
