Dallas police announced that arrest warrants were made for 22-year-old Thaddeous Charles Green, 32-year-old Michael Diaz Mitchell, and 20-year-old Jacquerious Mitchell. All of the men reside in Louisiana and Dallas PD Assistant Chief Avery Moore addressed that Brown's death was connected to Guyger's trial.
He stated during the press conference, "The rumors shared by community leaders that Mr. Brown’s death was related to the Amber Guyger trial and that the Dallas Police Department was responsible are false. We encourage those leaders to be mindful because their words may jeopardize the integrity of the city of Dallas and Dallas Police Department."
Moore explained that during a planned drug deal, Brown shot Jacquerious Mitchell, which led to Michael Mitchell to shoot Brown. Jacquerious is being treated at a Dallas hospital, while the other two men are at large.
More details to come.
