Brandon Miller delivered gun used in shooting

A recent report has surfaced involving Brandon Miller, a freshman basketball player from the University of Alabama. It has been claimed that Miller brought his teammate Darius Miles' handgun to police after Miles requested him to do so on the night of a fatal shooting that occurred last month in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. According to Tuscaloosa detective Branden Culpepper's testimony during a preliminary hearing for Miles and Michael Lynn Davis, Miller gave the gun to Culpepper after Miles texted him. Both Miles and Davis now face capital murder charges for the death of 23-year-old Jamea Jonae Harris, who was fatally shot near the University of Alabama's campus on January 15th.

The court documents state that Miles admitted to providing the gun used in the shooting, but Davis was the one who fired it. Culpepper stated on Tuesday that Miles told Davis where his gun was located in Miller's car. Miller has not been charged with any crime, and the Crimson Tide coach Nate Oats confirmed during a news conference that the program was aware of Miller's alleged involvement in the case. Paula Whitley, Tuscaloosa's chief deputy district attorney, confirmed that there were no charges that could be made against Miller.

During the hearing, both Davis and Miles' mothers took to the stand to testify that their sons would follow the rules if granted bail. However, this request was denied by Tuscaloosa County District Judge Joanne E. Jannik. Davis and Miles were visibly emotional and wiped away tears during the hearing. Miles has since been removed from the Crimson Tide program.
