So what is up with these father/son duos and shooting at people? A Fed Ex driver, 24-year-old D’Monterrio Gibson delivered a package in uniform in a marked Hertz truck. The two men tried to stop him and then shot at him. They have since been arrested and released on bond. After the incident Fed Ex wanted to report it the next day. He called the police himself, but was met with some suspicion.

Guess these guys didn't learn anything from the Arbery incident.



In my mind I’m thinking (the driver) is leaving to go to the store or something like that, but then they get extremely close to me and start blowing their horn. I proceed to leave the driveway. As I’m leaving the driveway, he starts driving in the grass trying to cut me off. My instincts kick in, I swerve around him, and I start hitting the gas trying to get out of the neighborhood because I don’t know what his intentions are.

I drive down about two or three houses. There’s another guy standing in the middle of the street pointing a gun at my windows and signaling to me to stop with his hands, as well as mouthing the word, “Stop.” I shake my head no, I hide behind the steering wheel, and I swerve around him as well. As I swerve around him, he starts firing shots into my vehicle.




But that reportedly wasn’t the end of it.

As he was about to leave the area, Gibson said he saw the same white pickup truck approaching yet again.

“I just went as fast as I could,” he told the Free Press. “He chased me all the way to the interstate.”

The vehicle he was driving — as well as some packages — reportedly bore tell-tale evidence of bullet holes, according to an account and photos provided by Gibson to the Free Press. Gibson was reportedly driving a Hertz rental van bearing “Hertz markings on the side.” The vehicle was described in local news reports as being “not an official FedEx truck,” though it may have been a replacement for a standard company vehicle. Gibson was reportedly wearing his standard FedEx uniform while out and about.




I reached dispatch and let him know what was going on, and I only had a chance to get a little of the story out when he cut me off and he was like, “Were you at this address?” I said yes. He was like, “Well I just got a call of a suspicious person at this address.” I was like, “Sir, I’m not a suspicious person, I work for FedEx. I was just doing my job.”

I also let him know that they shot at me, and he was like, “Well, they didn’t tell me that.” Of course they wouldn’t. … He told me to save the rest of my story, and he’d take my name down and give it to my supervisor.




Gregory Case allegedly drove the pickup truck. He was charged with conspiracy. His son, Brandon Case, allegedly fired the shots. He was charged with aggravated assault by shooting into an occupied vehicle.

The duo was arrested, charged, and subsequently released on bond last Tuesday, Feb. 1, 2022.

Self justice or just pure mental? I give to them they had the address where he was last, so not just random road rage on first look. Other than that, it's just mental to shoot at anyone for "suspicious activities", if not self defense or defense for others.

But... Charged for conspiracy, interesting. I can see the conspiring here, although I have a different angle at this.

What a shame it would be, if cases like this turn up now all the time, somehow influencing the narrative about how dangerous free thought conspiracy(theory) is. As the rampant problem it is, for our society as a whole. Perfectly aligned with the fake news and fact checking lately also.

I know one has to separate actual conspiracy like this happening, with conspiracy theorist. But does not matter, the average NPC will not get the difference, so conspiracy = hillbillies shooting around with guns.

It appears that conspiracy can be used because it was more than one person involved. Here's a snippet of the law there.



(1) If two (2) or more persons conspire either:

(a) To commit a crime; or

(b) Falsely and maliciously to indict another for a crime, or to procure to be complained of or arrested for a crime; or

(c) Falsely to institute or maintain an action or suit of any kind; or

(d) To cheat and defraud another out of property by any means which are in themselves criminal, or which, if executed, would amount to a cheat, or to obtain money or any other property or thing by false pretense; or

(e) To prevent another from exercising a lawful trade or calling, or doing any other lawful act, by force, threats, intimidation, or by interfering or threatening to interfere with tools, implements, or property belonging to or used by another, or with the use of employment thereof;

I just don't know what's going on with some people. The van is marked, the person is in uniform. What more is needed to stop someone from thinking the young black male is suspicious?

This kind of thing may get worse. If you order a same day delivery from Amazon, they have random drivers like Uber or Door Dash. They show up in their own vehicle with no uniform to deliver.

Gibson said he drove down the street about two or three houses when a man in the middle of the road pointed a gun at his vehicle and was mouthing and waving at Gibson to stop. Gibson said he shook his head "no" to indicate he wasn't going to stop and then hid behind his steering wheel while he swerved around him.

That's when Gibson heard "at least five shots and heard the bullets hitting the van," according to an incident report filed January 25 by the Brookhaven Police Department after officers met with Gibson and his boss.


He would have been within his rights to run the sucker down!

They should be behind bars for a long time.

Oh he is black? First time skin color comes up. But before there are no hints about it being a racial motivated crime, it's first and foremost a conspiracy theory other than the victims attorney saying they "believe it is racially motivated".

To understand how powerful such an accusation is, and probably why it is used regardless, check out the reaction and words from the police chief:


“We’re not going to have outsiders coming in trying to stir that up,” the police chief told the Daily Leader. “Brookhaven is not a racist, prejudiced town. You can’t judge a town by the actions of two individuals.”


So by saying this, he indirectly made the connection to racism and the two individuals. So maybe it was racism, maybe it was not but one this is sure, bring up racism and everyone involved starts to tip toe and cast defenses to not be painted racist.

I'm all for self protection...
But this needs scrutinized a hell of a lot more. Where else did those bullets go?

This is kind of what I'm worried about. With that bill being presented as a shoot first ask questions later. Stand your grounds.

I'm worried morons like this will see it as an opportunity make up some story to justify a possible killing.

Yes true. There is a thread about that here, although a lot of ATS members seemed to be in support of making it harder on the police and prosecutors rather than the person claiming self defense.

Was he jogging while delivering the packages? I here that can be triggering.

No, no outright claims. What in the world could have made them suspicious though? There have been no deliveries in the neighborhood ever? You would think they would have shot at 1 or 2 delivery people by now.

Ah! That's it. He may have jogged from the porch to the vehicle. Thanks for clearing it up.

People should think before they do this kind of crap. Someone who is not a cop, standing in the middle of the road and pointing a gun at me is getting run over. My dashcam will back up my story.

They did think, that's the problem. They obviously thought this out in their overly racist brains and figured it'd be a good idea to shoot at some dude in a moving vehicle who was delivering packages.

I'm pumped to hear what retarded defense they come up with.

You can judge a town by its apparent reluctance to keep felonious assault suspects in custody for public safety.

IDK, many things could be it, one of it, just an example:

He arrived and did not find the delivery spot and had to look around for it. Maybe checked some doors and bells to find someone. He might not have the package or letter with him at that time and left it in the truck.

This is a real world example. When I get deliveries to my shop, some are confused what truck garage door they need to stop. Sometimes I see and hear rattling at the fire exit door and it's always the UPS guys because it's convenient to stop there.

So you have UPS guy here, on the side of a building where you can't see if someone is in there and checking out doors. Maybe making a photo as a proof he was there but no one else.

I've had delivery guys coming from the sanitary area because he took a shortcut through the open door that is just a door sized window and was open that day.

There are enough real life examples what would someone see as "suspicious" when it isn't.

Wow we agree for one time.

I thought the same, one week? Out on bail? One of them shot at the vehicle! One week they gave them time to turn themselves in? WTF?

Plenty of time to remove any evidence or do it again, this time with success.

I mean I get what you're saying, however personally my first thought seeing a labeled truck and uniform would be maybe he needs the package signed for and is looking for someone, not that he's suspicious, and I'm not some naive person who thinks there are no bad people, but it's not a random unmarked car, plain clothes person.

That's my first thought too. Also not naive thinking there are no bad people out there.

But you know... bored or paranoid people exist. There are easy explanations why someone would be seen as doing suspicious things by others.

That it's not always racism or skin color related, just because victim and criminal have different skin color, is my point. And besides the victims attorney "believing it" there is zero hint it was a race / hate crime.

Unless you tell me they are known for it and audible. But before that, I stick back the race accuse card. The victims attorney of course will pull that card. Anything to win.

Yes I agree. And we have no comment from the defense lawyers or accused so it would be purely speculation.

As a northerner though, unfortunate as it may be I myself could be guilty of thinking race plays into it. A small southern town, two white men, a young black male just doing his job(as it appears so far). Plus seeing all the excuses for the McMichaels in the Arbery thread with people still thinking Abery stole items or what not, completely ignoring that in court it was shown to be completely false has maybe jaded me some what on how many people really make assumptions about young black men.
