Brentwood Police Investigate Drive-by Shooting Incident
The Brentwood Police Department is investigating a shooting death that occurred at 1426 Dozier Court in the Brenthaven subdivision shortly after 11:00 pm on Monday, December 3, 2018. Preliminary investigations indicate there is no threat to the community, as this appears to be a targeted shooting.
Chief Jeff Hughes said, "we believe that this was a residence that was targeted because of one of the individuals that lives here. This was not a random act and we do not believe there is any threat to the public at this time"
Officers responded to a 911 call reporting multiple shots had been fired into the house from the street. When officers arrived, they found a 25-year-old man, who was inside the home, had suffered a single gunshot wound. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. There were other family members in the house at the time of the incident who were unharmed.
Detectives continued to investigate the scene overnight and into Tuesday morning.
The identity of the victim has not been released at this time.
