Brown seemed to have been at home in the heat of an altercation with his brother. He let the officer know that his brother prevented him from entering their mom’s room.
The officer then asked Brown why he needed the keys. He replied that he needed to get his things, as he inserted a cuss word. The conversation shifted to him, and his brother as Brown was heard asking for “the gun.”
The dispatch officer who was still on the call inquired to know why a gun was in the conversation, and Brown, who sounded frustrated, said he was about to kill his brother.
Virginia police have since confirmed that Brown had no weapon on him.
The officer took that moment to remind him that he was on a 911 call while he asked Brown to desist from such an act. Brown replied as he told the officer that authorities needed to get to his location fast.
When the dispatcher asked Brown if he had a gun, he replied with a “yes” and later negated with a “nope.” Brown was said to have gone outside and repeatedly shouted that he has no weapon on him.
By then, siren blares were closer to where Brown was, and the dispatcher was still on the phone with him. When the police got to Brown, he was ordered to raise his hands.
The officer who ordered Brown raised his voice as though he spoke to another officer as he mentioned that Brown was raising a gun to his head. Within seconds, shots were fired, and Brown hit the floor.
The defense attorney for the Brown Family, David Haynes, described the Spotsylvania Police conduct as an act of negligence as he added that the officer overreacted at the scene.
Virginia police have since confirmed that Brown had no weapon on him. Reports show that after the shooting, the officer attempted CPR on Brown before EMT arrived at the scene.
Authorities shared that investigations are still ongoing as no comments could be made about the circumstances of the shooting. Brown was reported to be placed on a breathing machine.
