White Father & Son Indicted On Multiple Charges, Including Attempted Murder On A Black FedEx Driver

A white father and son have been indicted by a grand jury on multiple charges, including attempted murder, almost 10 months after a Black FedEx driver alleged he was chased and shot at after dropping off a package in a Mississippi city.

Gregory Case and his son Brandon were indicted last week by a Lincoln County grand jury on charges of attempted murder, conspiracy to commit the crime of murder and shooting into a motor vehicle in connection with the alleged Jan. 24 attack on D’Monterrio Gibson in Brookhaven, about 55 miles south of Jackson.

The population of Brookhaven is about 59% Black and 39% white, according to the most recent census data. Gregory Case was originally arrested in February on investigation of conspiracy and Brandon Case on suspicion of aggravated assault.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department said that bond was set at $500,000 for each man for the upgraded charges and that they both bonded out Friday. They have not yet been arraigned before a circuit court judge, and a trial date has not yet been set. Brandon Case’s attorney did not immediately return a request for comment.

It was not clear whether Gregory Case had retained an attorney. Gibson has said he was wearing a FedEx uniform when he dropped off a package at a house in Brookhaven on Jan. 24. He said he was not in a FedEx truck but in a Hertz van that FedEx had rented, with the rental company’s markings on the sides. As he was leaving, he said, a man in a white pickup truck began following him closely while honking his horn.

Gibson said he drove past a couple of houses and encountered a man standing in the middle of the road with a gun pointed at him. The man was mouthing the word “stop,” Gibson said. Gibson said he swerved to get around the man, who started shooting toward the rear of the Hertz vehicle, damaging the van and the packages inside.

He said that he called his manager, who told him to return to the FedEx station, and that the truck chased him to an interstate near Brookhaven before ending the pursuit. Gibson was not injured.
