A neighbor of Botham Jean who was a key witness in the murder trial of Amber Guyger has been shot dead in Dallas.
28-year-old Joshua Brown, was gunned down outside an apartment complex in the city’s Medical District around 10.30 pm on Friday.
He was rushed to nearby Parkland Memorial Hospital, where he died from his injuries.
Witnesses claimed they heard several gunshots and saw a silver sedan speeding out of the apartment complex’s parking lot shortly after.
Police have not apprehended or publicly identified a suspect in the fatal shooting, according to Dallas Morning News.
It’s also unclear whether Brown’s death was in any way connected to the Guyger’s murder trial.
Brown was a neighbor of both Jean and Guyger, and his shocking slaying comes just 10 days after he broke down on the witness stand as he recounted the night Jean was fatally shot by Guyger.
Last Tuesday, Guyger was found guilty of murder, and was subsequently sentenced to 10 years in prison.
