I have been in recent contact with the victim's mother Audrey McCullough who requested my assistance last month. She has requested that I add additional details to this entry. According to the official police report the officer who was called and came upon the scene stated:
"I was dispatched to a shooting. Upon my arrival, I observed the victim Brandon McCullough, laying in a position slumped over with his back against the south wall across from apartment 1123. Brandon still had a cigarette in his mouth. It was still lit. Brandon had a gun shot wound to the head. There was a burn mark contact shot on his hat. There was a slug found in the wall to the right of him. Brandon was still breathing but unresponsive. Brandon was transported to Memorial Hospital. I conducted a canvas of the area. Some people in the complex state to me that they heard one gunshot. They stated they observed a two colored truck leaving the scene. The vehicle was driven by a dark skinned black male. I spoke with two witnesses.
(Withholding Witness #1 Name) Stated that Brandon's sister lived in the complex in apartment #1134. She stated she saw Brandon earlier that day standing in the breezeway. She stated she heard a gunshot also, But did not see who did the shooting.
(Withholding Witness #2 Name) Stated that when she was leaving the apartment, she observed a gray gallant with four males, When she walked out of the breezeway they drove off. A few minutes later a neighbor called her and told her that she heard a gun shot in the building. Witness also stated that a week prior she observed a tall black running out of the breezeway. She then saw Brandon coming down the stairs in tattered clothing, and a shoulder injury.
