UPDATE: Many Remember the Life of Brandon Bradshaw

By Lindsey Yates | 

It was a shooting in Bowling Green that stirred a lot of emotion from the community, and today KSP says they are nearing the end of their investigation, and those searching for answers may get them soon.

In the meantime friends, family, and supporters attended the funeral of Brandon Bradshaw, the man who died in the officer involved shooting on the Bypass, last week.

Those who said while Brandon's life was cut short at the young age of 27 his memory will last forever.

As a former member of the National Guard who served in Iraq, members of the Patriot Guard rode to honor a fallen hero.

"It's something that tugs at your heart when you get on one of those bikes with a flag behind you and a deceased veteran following you," says Joe Hare, a member of the Patriot Guard.

Many attended the funeral to remember the man who mentored their sons and daughters as a Youth Theatre Educator at SkyPac.

"Brandon was one of those people when he walked in you knew something great had entered the room. He was always smiling, and just gave you that big, warm, teddy bear feeling," says Cara Gray, a friend of the Bradshaw family.

And one says goodbye to a best friend.

"He was my best friend so we did everything together. All kinds of adventures. We were in a band together and practically lived together. It's hard to imagine doing anything without him," says Randall Erskine.

And those who knew Bradshaw are trying to move past the tragic moment on the Bypass.

"I'm sad but I'm also happy that he no longer has to walk this earth, he's up in heaven and I feel comfort in that," says Gray.

"He was a man of small miracles, and he knew the power of a smile," says Erskine.

Brandon died the morning of Saturday March 2nd at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville.

KSP is waiting on the results from the final medical records and they hope to meet with Warren County Commonwealth Attorney, Chris Cohron by the end of next week.

The prosecution of the case will be decided by Cohron.
