A motive for the attack has not been released at this time.

On the Rompin Stompin Big Blue Band's Facebook page, the Graham High School band, this statement was made following Brown's death.

"Though many of you have heard by now, it is with great sadness that we pass along the news of Harrison Brown's passing. He was taken from us in a senseless act of violence on the University of Texas campus earlier today. In the morning, we will visit at the beginning of first period. Following that, we will rehearse, as it is a fitting honor to his memory. Music and our bond as musicians is something that cannot be taken away and has an enormous ability to comfort and heal.
