Botham Jean's Neighbor, A Key Witness In Amber Guyger Trial, Shot & Killed In Dallas

DALLAS (Fox6) — A man who was a key witness in the murder trial of former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger was fatally shot Friday, Oct. 4 in the parking lot of his apartment complex, according to attorney Lee Merritt.

Joshua Brown was a neighbor of shooting victim Botham Jean, who was sitting in his apartment in September 2018 when Guyger walked inside and shot him to death.

Lee Merritt, attorney for Jean’s family, said he spoke to Brown’s mother, who confirmed the death.

Dallas police responded to a call for a shooting at the Atera Apartments complex around 10:30 p.m. Friday, police told CNN.

Officers were flagged down by witnesses who directed them to Brown, who was lying on the ground of the apartment parking lot with multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to Parkland Memorial Hospital, where he died from his injuries, according to a statement from Dallas police.

Witnesses told police they heard several gunshots and saw a silver, four-door sedan speed out of the parking lot, police said.

Brown had no identification on him, so police couldn’t identify him until the medical examiner made a positive ID and notified the next of kin.

There is no suspect information at this time, police said.


Merritt said Brown lived in constant fear of gun violence and that’s why he was emotional on the witness stand during the trial.

“He said it could have been him,” Merritt said.

Guyger, 31, was found guilty of murder a few days ago and given a 10-year sentence. She will first be eligible for parole in five years.

The ex-officer said she mistakenly walked into the wrong apartment in her complex and opened fire because she thought Jean was an intruder.
