DISTRICT ATTORNEY WILLIAMS STANDS BY INVESTIGATION CONDUCTED INTO THE SHOOTING OF BRANDON TATE-BROWN

by

PHILADELPHIA (June 15, 2015) – Philadelphia District Attorney R. Seth Williams today issued the following statement in response to calls to re-open the investigation that was conducted into the shooting death of Brandon Tate-Brown:

“The Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office conducted a thorough investigation into the shooting death of Brandon Tate-Brown and the evidence showed – evidence that was corroborated by physical evidence and officer and witness testimony alike – that Brandon Tate-Brown had a gun in the car with his DNA on it, tried to get it on more than one occasion and was shot because he put two Philadelphia Police Officers and everyone else who was at the scene that evening in danger.

“Like I have said before, my sympathies go out to the Tate-Brown family, but I stand by my decision to not file charges against the officers and have no plans to re-open the investigation because what happened was tragic, but not criminal.”
