According to an arrest affidavit published by KKTV and reviewed by PEOPLE, Brown is accused of waiting for Winters outside the courthouse and shooting him multiple times. The victim, who was due in court for an arraignment related to an April assault case, suffered fatal gunshot wounds to the chest and head.

The affidavit reveals that Brown claimed he had been previously assaulted by Winters in April and feared for his life after receiving threatening messages from him. A witness to the shooting reportedly heard Brown say, “I told you I was going to get you,” before firing more shots at Winters.

Surveillance footage from outside the courthouse depicted Brown waiting for almost 30 minutes before Winters arrived. The Denver Post noted that Winters had a court appearance scheduled for the same day in connection with the April assault case.

Contradictions emerged in Brown’s statement to the police, initially asserting that he began firing at Winters as he approached but later claiming to have “blacked out” upon confrontation. Surveillance footage, however, presented a conflicting account.

The disturbing footage also captured the moment Winters, carrying the baby, dropped the child as he was shot. Reports indicate that the baby sustained redness and bruising in the tragic incident.

As the investigation unfolds, questions surround the motive behind the targeted attack, and the community mourns the loss of William Winters. Brown is set to make his first court appearance on Nov. 27, and details about his legal representation remain unclear at this time.
