Brandon and his younger brother, Ryan, had been at a bonfire and marshmallow roast in the area with friends the morning of the shooting. While returning home, the brothers became lost and stopped on Fennell Lane. Moyers, who was living on Fennel Road in a mobile home owned by his mother at the time and believed the brothers were would-be criminals, walked to the area with his assault rifle and a flashlight. When Ryan drove past Moyers on Fennel Road and would not stop, Moyers fired what he called “a warning shot,” which struck the tailgate and pierced the cab, killing Brandon.
Moyers was free on bond after his initial arrest for murder. However, when a grand jury formally charged him with capital murder, his bail was revoked. He will remain in the Limestone County Jail until his trial.
