    Prosecutors have dropped charges against two men who burst through their brother's Overtown murder scene last month. One ended up in a brawl with police.

    Anthony Walker, 28, had been charged with battery on an officer and resisting an officer with violence after his brother Brandon Walker was killed.

    Anthony, a Baptist minister said words fail to explain what was caught on Chopper 6's camera on April 8th.

    First, his 27-year-old brother, Antwan, dashed past police tape and raced toward their younger brother's body.

    Walker said he ran after his brother through the crime scene because he was trying to restrain him.

    Video shows Detective Fernando Bosch punching Walker multiple times.

    "Clearly there was an injust <sic> done there," Walker said. "I just expect every officer to do their job."

    Walker and his attorney did not say whether they might file a civil suit against Bosch.

    As part of the state attorney's agreement to drop the charges, both brothers also agreed there wouldn't be a criminal investigation into Det. Bosch's actions.

    Prosecutors noted internal affairs personnel of the Miami police department are still examining what happened.

    Walker said coping with his brother, Brandon Walker's death, has been difficult. He made an appeal for anyone with information on his brother's killer to contact police.

    "Please help the law enforcement community with finding justice for my little brother," he said.
