Three things for October 7
1. Witness in Amber Guyger trial shot
Joshua Brown, a neighbor of Botham Jean and a witness for the prosecution against @DallasPD officer Amber Guyger, was gunned down at his apartment complex. His family deserves an independent investigation. #Justice4JoshuaBrown pic.twitter.com/CilHmG6qhE— Shannon Watts (@shannonrwatts) October 6, 2019
A witness from the Amber Guyger trial, in which Guyger was convicted of shooting and killing their mutual neighbor, was found dead on Friday evening.
Joshua Brown, who testified last month, was found “shot … lying on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds,” according to the Associated Press. Brown was a key witness in the trial, helping to convict Guyger of the murder.
