Tommy Brown has obtained an attorney, Alan Simpson, to represent him during the investigation of the shooting of Brandon Bradshaw.
Simpson said his client is receiving a lot of blame and this was a case of self-defense.
"I would just ask the viewers, the people who look at the website, all the people on social media right now to reserve judgment because they don't know the truth, and I will just say that I'm aware of the facts of the case and this was a case of self-defense," said Simpson.
Simpson also said it's been difficult for everyone involved.
"I spoke to Tommy this afternoon, his family is praying for Brandon to recover. As I said, no one ever wants anything to happen like this. It's a tragedy. Obviously, Brandon is well liked in this community and so is Tommy, and we're just praying he has a speedy recovery," said Simpson.
WBKO has received several comments about why Brown was not arrested, Simpson said there has to be an investigation to see if the shooting was justified.
