Michael Mitcheell arrested in connection to Joshua Brown murder, Thaddeous Green ‘still at large’

Avoyelles Parish have arrested two people in connection to the murder of Joshua Brown, a key witness in the murder trial of former Dallas police Officer Amber Guyger, and third suspect has been identified as Thaddeous Green.

Avoyelles Parish Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Steven Martel confirmed that Michael Mitchell was arrested at a motel in Marksville, Louisiana Tuesday evening.

Mitchell, 32, is the suspected getaway driver in the Friday night Brown murder.
Jacquerious Mitchell, 20, had previously been arrested and was in custody at a hospital, Dallas police Assistant Chief Avery Moore said at a news conference Tuesday.

Police also stated that Thaddeous Green, 22, remains at large.

Officials said the three men traveled from Alexandria, Louisiana, to purchase drugs from Brown, 28, in the parking lot of a Dallas apartment complex.

Jacquerious Mitchell told police that Brown shot him in the chest after Green and Brown got into an altercation during the drug deal, and that Green then shot Brown twice, Moore said.

Green took Brown’s backpack and the gun used to shoot Jacquerious Mitchell and the three suspects fled the scene, Moore said.

The suspects dropped Jacquerious Mitchell off at a hospital.

Police confiscated 12 pounds of marijuana, 149 grams of THC cartridges and $4,157 in cash during a search of Brown’s home, Moore said.

Brown was murdered two days after Guyger was convicted of murder.

Moore said at Tuesday’s news conference that Brown’s killing was not related to his testimony in Guyger’s case.

“As you know, there’s been speculation and rumors that have been shared by community leaders claiming that Mr. Brown’s death was related to the Amber Guyger trial and somehow the Dallas Police Department was responsible,” Moore said.

“I assure you that is simply not true, and I encourage those leaders to be mindful of their actions moving forward because their words have jeopardized the integrity of the city of Dallas as well as the Dallas Police Department.”
