Shooting Suspects Statements to Police – “Clear Case of Self Defense,” per Attorney

March 24th, 2022 by

Brandon knight Douglas shooting suspectThis article includes statements of alleged shooting suspect Brandon Knight, age 22 of Jacksonville, facing multiple charges in relation to Saturday night’s shooting in Dumas, Arkansas, at a car show/rap contest, with an estimated 1500+ people in attendance.

An ASP investigator interviewed Brandon Knight at the Jefferson Regional Medical Center on March 19, where the suspect stated that he had been in line for the food truck, but the stline was too long, so they (he, the deceased Cameron Sharffer, and Another friend named Kaleb) decided to go to McDonalds. He then stated that he turned around and saw “somebody with a black backpack getting jacked up.”

The document continues, “The guy come up with the gun and started shooting.  Knight said he couldn’t see the shooter, just the flashes.  Knight continued explaining that he tried to turn around and run.

On Tuesday, detectives received information from a witness in the funnel cake truck line that he saw  a light-complexion black male in the line to his right.  The witness said the male “had two braids off the back of his head.”  He added that the man was wearing jogging pants and a beanie on his head.

The witness then told officers that he saw the guy pull a gray pistol and start shooting at least six shots.

Upon arrival at the Dumas Hospital, the witness identified a male laying on a gurney as the shooter. Upon further investigation, Brandon Knight fit that description.

On Tuesday, the detective interviewed Brandon Knight at JRMC.  He stated that he rode down from Little Rock with Cameron Shaffer and Kaleb Daniels.

“Brandon stated that they were walking from the food truck line to go to McDonalds. Kaleb fell back a little bit, and somebody was taking Kaleb’s backpack off of him and had a gun to his leg. He said the guy shoots Kaleb.”

Knight continued the interview by stating, “I had my gun right here (pointing inside his waistband).”  He added, when the guy shot Kaleb, that he couldn’t let that happen.

He said, “I’m reaching for mine (gun), (when) he shoots me in my chest, so I shoot (making a shooting motion with his right hand),”

Knight didn’t know how many times he shot but he knew it was multiple times, he said it was happening so fast and his adrenaline was up.

He then told the investigator that he got shot in the arm and dropped his gun and ran.

He described his pistol as a brown gun (Glock). He then said he and Kaleb ran to Cameron’s car, before they were taken to Dumas Hospital.

It was also included that Knight said, “i know there was a lot of kids out there, I seen the kids in the hospital and it hurt.”

He confirmed that he had two braids in his hair, at the time.

During the investigation there was a tan colored .40 caliber Glock pistol with a black extended magazine found on the scene. The pistol contained a live round in chamber and two live rounds in magazine. There were seventeen spent .40 caliber casings found on the scene.

After the first appearance hearing, Knights attorney, Ronald Davis of Little Rock, described the testimony by the ASP detective as showing, “a clear case of self defense.”
