Arrested, 2 Other Suspects Identified in Shooting Death of Joshua Brown

Recently, former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger was found guilty of shooting Botham Jean in his apartment.

Brown was found shot to death 10 days after he delivered emotional testimony in the trial of former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger, setting off speculation about whether his slaying was related to his appearance as a key witness in the high-profile murder trial.

Jean, a 26-year-old accountant, was killed when Guyger said she mistakenly walked into his apartment, one floor above her unit, and mistook him for a burglar.

"I assure you that is simply not true", said Assistant Chief of Police Avery Moore, during a news conference that was posted on the department's Facebook page. "We encourage those leaders to be mindful because their words may jeopardize the integrity of the city of Dallas and Dallas Police Department", Moore is quoted as saying by WFAA.

According to police officials, Brown's death was the result of a drug deal gone wrong, but the details have definitely spurred interest from social media who staunchly believe Brown's is liked to his involvement with the trial.

The conversation between Green and Brown turned into a physical altercation, Moore said, at which time Mitchell got out of the vehicle. That was when police claimed that Mitchell said Brown was shot twice in the chest by Thaddeous Green, a 22-year-old who police said they were still searching for as of Tuesday afternoon. He testified he didn't hear any police commands like "Show me your hands", before hearing the gunshots.

Since the end of previous year , Samsung Electronics , the world's highest revenue semiconductor company, has been in trouble. The main reason behind the drop is the memory chip business of the company which is now suffering from low demand.

One of the suspects took Brown's backpack and gun before fleeing the scene, reports indicate. Neither Michael Mitchell nor Thaddeous Green are in custody.

Michael Mitchell was the driver and allegedly dropped Green off in an unknown area then drove Jacquarious to the hospital.

Police are still looking for Green and Michael Diaz Mitchell.

The conversation "escalates into physical altercations", Moore said. Authorities confiscated 12 pounds (5.4 kilograms) of marijuana, 149 grams of THC cartridges and more than $4,000 in cash during a search of Brown's home. Dallas police, conveniently, did not address any of that.

NBC News reported that police made sure to point out during the press conference that they said Brown's murder was not connected to Guyger's murder trial.

It is unclear how the three men came into contact with Brown or why they would have driven more than 300 miles (483 kilometers) from central Louisiana to purchase marijuana in Texas.
