A 23-year-old woman was fatally killed by her abusive boyfriend. Channel Briwn was shot by Earnest Easterling on October 27. They were having an argument outside their home. Brown had already called 9-1-1 during their altercation. The deputies arrived at the scene as soon as they got the call.
The Gruesome Act
As per the sources and a security footage brown was trying to save others from Easterling’s rage. He was holding a gun and was threatening her. The video also shows Easterling says, “You told the police about me? I did not do anything”. While their arguments, Brown tells someone to lock the door. The person is not seen on the frame. The video footage also shows the deputies arriving on time at the scene.
Brown was cooperating with the police and she was seen walking out of the frame. This is the time when Easterling rushed towards her and fires her at the range of point-blank. Within seconds of his firing Easterling is also shot down by the police.
The Evidence Speaks
As per Seargent Tess Deterding, “The video speaks a lot. If you see the video carefully it unfolds the entire matter within seconds”. Brown’s mourning family holds a press conference this Wednesday. As per KCRA’s reports they said that Easterling was Brown’s first boyfriend. He was very abusive and dangerous. Her family referred to Brown’s last moments as “angelic”.
Veronica Brown, Channel’s mother says, “my daughter was an angel. She saved everybody. She saved people. My daughter sacrificed her own life to save others”. Veronica says this is what really happened. Her daughter gave up her own life to save others. Kevonna, Brown’s sister says she has known Easterling from when they served in the military together. She says she thought he was a good man and would protect her sister. She never thought he could hurt her to such an extent that it would end up killing her.
This press conference was to make other people speak up against domestic violence. The family urges all the victims to speak up. They say what happened to their daughter could happen to anyone. Therefore it is very important to take action when there is still time.
