Glad to hear that the PD has not released the name of the shooter, and hopefully no charges will be brought.Wednesday's shooting death of Michael Jerome Brown has been termed an act of self-defense.
Police spokesman Officer John Young said Friday that a man shot Brown, 29, multiple times inside an apartment in Garden Park Estates, after Brown threatened residents with a firearm.
Brown's body was found by police at 3:45 a.m. Wednesday inside an apartment in the 1000 block of E. Woodlawn Drive off Dauphin Island Parkway, Young said.
Police are withholding the name of the man who shot Brown, Young said, because charges have not been brought against him. Young also declined to comment on whether the man is a resident of the apartment community.
Police on Friday would also not say why Brown brandished a weapon and threatened residents.
Young did, however, say Brown was not a resident of the apartment community and that he was visiting people living in an apartment on the block where he was killed.
The case, Young said, will now go before a Mobile County grand jury.
