“Joshua Brown, a prosecution witness in the trial of Amber Guyger, was shot to death, the Dallas District Attorney’s Office confirmed Saturday. Amber Guyger is a former Dallas police officer who was found guilty earlier this week of murdering Botham Jean, her neighbor, in his home.
Dallas County prosecutor Jason Hermus, the lead prosecutor in the Guyger case, told the Dallas Morning News on Saturday that Brown stood up at a time when others wouldn’t say what they knew.
“He bravely came forward to testify when others wouldn’t, ” Hermus said. “If we had more people like him, we would have a better world.”
