Two men accused of shooting at a FedEx driver in Brookhaven are set for trial in August.
Brandon Case and his father, Gregory Charles Case, were indicted in the January 2022 incident on charges of attempted first-degree murder, conspiracy and shooting into the vehicle of D’Monterrio Gibson.
Lincoln County Circuit Court Judge David Strong has appointed Aug. 8 as the starting date for their trial.
Gibson, who was 24 at the time, was not injured. Gibson was reportedly wearing a FedEx uniform and was driving an unmarked van that FedEx had rented when he dropped off a package.
As Gibson went back to his truck, he noticed a white pickup truck a little ways away and said the driver attempted to cut him off as he tried to leave. Gibson said he swerved around the driver and a second man was in the road with a gun pointed at the van. The man allegedly told him to stop. According to Gibson, the man fired at him, and the pickup chased him to I55.
Attorney Carlos Moore filed a lawsuit on behalf of Gibson against FedEx, the city of Brookhaven, Brookhaven Police Chief Kenny Collins, Brandon Case and Gregory Charles Case.
