Police officer who shot man in car charged with murder

A police officer in Virginia has been indicted on a murder charge in the shooting death of a man in a vehicle near a motel.

A prosecutor says Bristol police Officer Jonathan Brown was released on a $25,000 bond after he turned himself in to the Virginia State Police.

Don Caldwell, Commonwealth’s Attorney for the City of Roanoke, Virginia, says Brown was indicted on charges of murder, using a firearm in the commission of a felony and shooting into an occupied vehicle in the March 30 shooting death of 31-year-old Jonathen Kohler, of Bristol, Tennessee.

As a college student, making an extra buck now and then was very important. I started as a part-time reporter since I was 19 yo, and I couldn’t believe it might become a long-time career. I'm happy to be part of the Virginian Tribune's team.
