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."

Lee Merritt — a lawyer for the family of Botham Jean, the black man who was fatally shot by Guyger, a white officer who was off duty but in uniform — previously said Brown had reservations about testifying in the trial because of concerns for his safety.

On Tuesday, Merritt released a statement on behalf of the Brown family calling for the Dallas Police Department to turn the investigation over to another agency.

Dallas police say Joshua Brown was murdered during a prearranged drug deal. BREAKING: Dallas police issue arrest warrants for three suspects in the slaying of key witness in Amber Guyger trial .

An arrest has been made in the murder of Joshua Brown, a key witness in the murder trial of former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger . Brown, 28, was found lying on the ground in an apartment parking lot with multiple gunshot wounds, two days after Guyger was convicted of murder .

"This family and their representatives have consciously avoided speculating about law enforcement involvement in this tragedy, however, due to the proximity of this murder with the trial of Amber Guyger — rumors abound," the statement said, in part. "A cloud of suspicion will rest over this case until steps are taken to ensure the trustworthiness of the process."

Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson asked the public in a tweet over the weekend to “refrain from speculation” about Brown’s shooting.

Brown's slaying Friday occurred less than six miles from the apartment complex where Jean, his neighbor, was fatally shot by Guyger on Sept. 6, 2018.

Brown had lived across the hall from Jean, the 26-year-old accountant, who grew up in the Caribbean island nation of St. Lucia, at the Southside Flats apartment building in Dallas. He was a key witness in the trial, testifying that he heard an exchange between two people and then two quick gunshots. He also testified that he had also walked to the wrong floor of the apartment building in the past, which was Guyger's explanation for why she entered Jean's apartment thinking it was her own.

Guyger lived a floor below Jean.

She was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
