Three Men Indicted On Capital Murder Charges For Killing Joshua Brown

The three men who allegedly shot and killed Joshua Brown are facing capital murder charges.

Joshua Brown’s death made national news because he was a witness who had testified in the Amber Guyger murder trial. 

Joshua was shot multiple times on October 4, just 10 days after his emotional testimony that helped secure a guilty verdict against former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger. Guyger is currently serving a 10-year sentence for the fatal shooting of unarmed Botham Jean. Guyger shot and killed Jean in his own apartment because she claimed she entered his apartment by accident thinking it was her apartment and she thought Jean was a burglar. 

Because the shooting happened so close to his testimony, Joshua’s death ignited speculations that he may have been killed by police for testifying against the Guyger. 

Investigators would later say that Joshua’s death was the result of a drug deal gone bad. 

On Thursday, a grand jury indicted 32-year-old Michael Mitchell, 20-year-old Jacquerious Mitchell and 22-year-old Thaddeous Charles Green (who is at large) for the murder of Joshua Brown.

According to Assistant Dallas Police Chief Avery Moore, the three men were in Dallas to buy drugs from Joshua. 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.

Michael and Jacquerious were arrested days after Brown’s death and remain in the Dallas County Jail on $500,000 bond each. Police are still looking for Green.
