Joshua Brown Shot Dead
The victim of the murder of Dallas shooting name or identification is not released from Dallas police but the victim identified as Joshua Brown neighbor of Botham Jean.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Police Officers from Dallas police Department arrived on the scene at around 10:30 p.m. to the Atera apartments located at the 4600 blocks of Cedar Springs Road in Dallas’ Turtle Creek neighborhood.
Police found Joshua Brown on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds. He was rushed to Parkland Memorial Hospital, where he not revived from his injuries.
Some people around the shooting place told police they heard fires and saw a silver four-door sedan speeding out of the parking lot.
Dominique Alexander, a Dallas area civil rights activist who is close to Brown’s family, posted about his death on Facebook:
I [have] been notified that Joshua Brown who testified on the stand in the Amber Guyger trial was shot & killed last night, not sure what happen but I will keep you updated on new developments.
Lee Merritt, who is the Lawyer of the Botham Jean’s family, later confirmed the news on Twitter and in a separate Facebook post.
“Joshua Brown, the next-door neighbor of #BothamJean was killed last night after being shot several times by an unknown assailant,” Merritt noted. “Local media has reported on the shooting but have not confirmed Brown’s identity. Because Brown worked closely with prosecutors just a week ago to ensure Amber Guyger was properly convicted in the murder trial, the DA’s office has fairly direct contact with Brown and his family. An ADA has confirmed that it was, in fact, Brown who was killed although they have yet to identify a suspect or motive for the shooting. The case is now in the hands of the Dallas Police Department. Brown’s testimony stood out as a fact witness who was approaching his apartment directly across from Botham Jean’s apartment when shots rang out.”

Instead, they referred us to their official release on the case:
On Friday, October 4, 2019, at approximately 10:37 p.m., Dallas patrol officers responded to a shooting call at the ATERA apartments located at 4606 Cedar Spring Road. Upon arrival, officers were flagged down by several witnesses directing them to the complainant’s location. The complainant was found lying on the ground in the apartment parking lot with multiple gunshot wounds. Dallas Fire-Rescue responded and transported the complainant to Parkland Memorial Hospital, where he died from his injuries.
Several witnesses heard several gunshots and observed a silver four-door sedan leaving the parking lot at a high rate of speed. There is no additional information on the suspect(s) at this time.
The complainant did not have any ID cards on him therefore, next of kin notification will be pending the ME examination and positive identification. It is important to note that there were no additional victims regarding this shooting call. The two victims I reported earlier that showed up at Parkland Hospital was not related to this shooting. This is an ongoing investigation, and no one is in custody.
