Brown, 28, lived across the hall from Jean and testified about the night he was killed.

A preliminary investigation shows Brown was shot in the back and thigh, a government official said on condition of anonymity.

Dallas County prosecutor Jason Hermus, the lead prosecutor in the Guyger case, said Saturday that Brown stood up at a time when others won’t say what they know.
