Trial for two white men accused of trying to kill a Black FedEx driver in Brookhaven will begin on Tuesday.
In November, Brandon Case and his father, Gregory Charles Case, were indicted on charges of attempted first-degree murder, conspiracy, and shooting into a vehicle occupied by 24-year-old D’Monterrio Gibson in January 2022. They were released on $500,000 bonds each.
According to Gibson, who was dropping off a package at a home in Brookhaven in a van rented by FedEx, one of the two men approached him in a pickup truck from a nearby home. The other suspect was pointing a firearm at the van and began firing, damaging the vehicle and packages inside, as Gibson sped off.
Gibson claims to have been chased until the pursuit ended with him landing on Interstate 55 northbound en route to FedEx’s Jackson distribution center.
The delivery driver and his manager filed a complaint the following morning with the Brookhaven Police Department. The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation assisted in the investigation.
In January, Gibson, represented by attorney Carlos Moore, filed a lawsuit against FedEx, the city of Brookhaven, and Brookhaven Police Chief Kenneth Collins.
