LOUISVILLE, KY — Today the Jefferson County Grand Jury returned an indictment against
Devone F. Briggs for the February 23, 2019, murder of Jose Antonio Munoz-Munoz at the Olive Garden at 4811 Outer Loop. Briggs has been charged with one count of Murder and seven counts of Wanton Endangerment in the First Degree. The Wanton Endangerment charges result from the fact that Briggs discharged his firearm in a crowded restaurant which threatened death or serious physical injury to seven other adults and children in the restaurant.

The case has been assigned to Division 9 of Jefferson Circuit Court and Briggs is expected to be formally arraigned there on Monday, April 8, 2019 at 1:30 p.m. Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Marit DeLozier is the prosecutor.
