Quintez Brown, prior to being charged with the shooting of a Louisville mayoral candidate, was featured in an MSNBC segment covering students participating in “March For Our Lives” protests and demanding stricter gun laws. 

“And if you’re not going to give us that,” he said, specifically targeting Kentucky Republican Senator Mitch McConnell, “then we’re going to get everyone out here to vote, and we’re going to vote you out of office.”

Brown also received a special mention at the University of Louisville because he was awarded a spot at a major gathering.

That national gathering involved former President Barack Obama, on behalf of the Obama Foundation’s My Brother’s Keeper Alliance.

“I was able to meet and speak to President Barack Obama. I shook his hand, looked him in the eye, and told him my name and where I came from,” Brown said of the experience.

Charles Booker, candidate for Senate in Kentucky, had tweeted praise for Brown as “a brilliant young scholar” and mentioned that he spoke at his Senate launch in 2019.

Brown was reported missing several days earlier, possibly foreshadowing mental health problems.

Booker a statement saying his “heart hurts” for Quintez Brown and noted his arrest for the attempted shooting of a Louisville mayoral candidate is “absolutely crushing.”
