Adult Male Attempts to Shoot His Mother in Duval Heights

Adult Male Attempts to Shoot His Mother in Duval Heights

On September 16, at approximately 7:48 am, an adult male shot at his Mother as she was backing out of her driveway in Duval Heights neighborhood. The shooter was allegedly in an argument with his Mother before trying to kill her as she was leaving. The victim was not injured according to the Facebook post by GPD.

Police audio indicates the shooter may have also been in an argument with his Father before firing shots. One caller suggested they heard five shots go off.

GPD also responded by blocking off Newberry Road and the intersection at 62nd and Newberry

The suspect was described as a Black man with a heavy build and tattoos, wearing a black shirt and shorts. After the Mom left, he remained in the home with his teenage brother. Eventually, officers spotted them on the porch before detaining both of them.

Update: GPD has confirmed they arrested Brandon D. Holsey, 33, for the attempted killing of his Mother. He was charged with attempted homicide.
