Statement on Shooting of Patrick Lyoya

Apr 14, 2022 | News

Michael Brown’s campaign released the following statement today:

As in any situation like this it is important not to rush to judgement.  This tragic incident will be thoroughly investigated and reviewed.

The Grand Rapids police chief was right to release videos in an effort to maintain transparency.

Michael Brown was an early advocate for police body cams for just this reason. He believes full transparency is important. 

Michael Brown is a dedicated law enforcement professional with an unmatched record on public safety and supporting our police officers.

The job of a police officer is filled with split second decisions. All actions require thoughtful review evaluating all available evidence.  

Michael Brown will not be making any statements about the case since the MIchigan State Police is the lead investigating agency.
