Brookhaven Men Charged With Attempted Murder In Shooting of Black FedEx Driver

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department has arrested Gregory Charles Case and his son Brandon Case, charging them with multiple crimes including attempted murder, stemming from a January 2022 shooting. D’Monterrio Gibson of Utica, Miss., told the Mississippi Free Press in February that the men confronted him as he was delivering packages for FedEx in Brookhaven, Miss., chasing him down and shooting at him repeatedly.

The Brookhaven Daily Leader first reported that a Lincoln County grand jury indicted the father and son on multiple charges, including attempted murder, shooting at a motor vehicle and conspiracy. Both men had their bonds set at $500,000, and have since bonded out.

Previously, Brandon Case was charged with aggravated assault for the shooting. His father Gregory faced charges of conspiracy to commit aggravated assault.

Charges Upgraded

Gibson gave his account to the Mississippi Free Press in the days that followed the attack. The men, he said, attempted to box him into a driveway during a routine delivery. Gibson was wearing his FedEx uniform and driving a Hertz rental truck.

“As I’m leaving the driveway, (one of the men) starts driving in the grass trying to cut me off. My instincts kick in, I swerve around him, and I start hitting the gas trying to get out of the neighborhood because I don’t know what his intentions are,” Gibson detailed then.

“I drive down about two or three houses,” he continued. “There’s another guy standing in the middle of the street pointing a gun at my windows and signaling to me to stop with his hands, as well as mouthing the word, ‘Stop.’ I shake my head no, I hide behind the steering wheel, and I swerve around him as well. As I swerve around him, he starts firing shots into my vehicle.”
