Woman’s nephew connected to shooting death

Kimberly Milton-Brown

AUSTIN (KXAN) — An arrest affidavit released Thursday sheds new light on an East Austin shooting that left a woman dead and another man in the hospital. Police officers responded to Westheimer Oaks Apartments Tuesday night and found 40-year-old Kimberly Milton-Brown at the bottom of a staircase with a gunshot wound to the chest. She died at the scene.

Milton-Brown’s husband, Charles Brown, initially told police he didn’t know what happened to his wife, but later told investigators the shooting stemmed from a confrontation between his nephew and another man, the document said.

Shortly after the shooting police learned that another man, 28-year-old Clifton Harris, had showed up in the emergency room at St. David’s Medical Center with a gunshot wound. Harris told police he had been having problems with a man known as ‘Fox,’ later identified as Terrance Jackson, and decided to confront him, the affidavit said. Brown reportedly let Harris into the apartment so the two could work out their problems.

Harris said the argument became heated and he pushed Jackson. Jackson responded by pulling out a pistol and shooting Harris at close range, the document said. Harris then ran from the apartment as more shots rang out from behind him, he said.

Brown had told KXAN on Wednesday that Milton-Brown was not the intended target and she was trying to break up the fight between Brown and Harris. Police have not said who shot Milton-Brown and have only charged Jackson, 44, with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bond was set at $50,000.
