Two DeLand police officers got behind the car as it headed west on Beresford Avenue. Brown did not stop and made a left turn on South Delaware Avenue, a dead-end street that ends near an empty lot. Brown stopped the car and ran from it, as one DeLand patrol car stopped behind Brown’s Toyota Camry. The other patrol car, driven by Officer Harris, drove past on the left of the other stopped patrol car and struck Brown, who was running, with the right front, Montes said.
Harris then ran over Brown, killing him on the spot, Montes said.
At the scene behind some apartment buildings at 901 S. Delaware Ave., tire tracks lead from the paved road into the empty lot for more than a hundred yards, running over bean plants and knocking down a chain link fence. This is where witness Sabrina Waldron said the car stopped on top of Brown.
Waldron said Brown’s car pulled along the woods and stopped.
“There was no need to run him down,” Waldron said. “After the car hit Marlon and landed on him the back end of it was up in the air.”

Kenyatta White filed a lawsuit this week in the accident caused by a recent police academy graduate. White says she suffered lower back and cervical injuries in the July 21 collision that killed another driver, Jackie Culp, 59.
According to reports, Atlanta Police Officer Joshua Sieck was responding to a call when he drove through a red light at Cascade Drive and Fairburn Road in southwest Atlanta. His squad car smashed into the side of Culp’s car, forcing it into the front of White’s vehicle.
Sieck was charged with second-degree vehicular homicide and fired two days later by Atlanta Police Chief George Turner.
Culp’s family sued the city in March.
White’s lawsuit claims negligence, saying that the “emergency suicide call” that Sieck was responding to was 30 minutes old and had been downgraded to a non-life-threatening emergency.
White and her attorneys say that Atlanta officials have been unresponsive to their requests for information.
A police officer in the suburban Dallas community of Richardson, Texas, shot and killed Emily Krumrei, 32, a woman with outstanding drug arrest warrants as she fled from an attempted traffic stop Monday morning.
According to the Dallas Morning News, citing Richardson police spokesperson Sgt. Kevin Perlich, an officer “was attempting to get a violator to pull over in a parking lot” for reasons that are yet unclear, but Krumrei fled in her Lexus. Shortly thereafter, an officer in a squad car saw her and attempted to stop her, but she refused to pull over.
Krumrei turned onto the southbound frontage road to the North Central Expressway. There, Perlich said, “a third officer near the frontage road was working a traffic accident. He stepped out into the road and tried to get her to stop.” But instead, Perlich said, Krumrei accelerated and clipped the officer. “The officer, in fear for his life, fired upon the vehicle,” Perlich said.
The Dallas NBC affiliate had a slightly, but significantly, different chronology of the shooting. According to NBC, the officer “fired at least one shot at the woman before being struck by the car.”
I live about 5 minutes from where this happened.
