Mother of Brooksville shooting victim speaks out about incident

30-year-old Glenn Omar Dooley died after being shot in the head

BROOKSVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) – Brooksville police continue to investigate a September shooting that left one man dead.

30-year-old Glenn Omar Dooley died after being shot in the head by a drive-by shooter on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive

WCBI sat down for an exclusive interview with the victim’s mother to learn more about the case.

“There is not a day that I don’t get up that I don’t think about my child,” Annie Dooley, mother of the victim. “He didn’t deserve to be robbed of his life.”

Just over two months ago, 30-year-old Glenn Dooley was killed after being shot in the head, during a drive-by shooting.

Annie Dooley said it’s a day she will never forget and a nightmare she can’t wake up from.

“When I made it to my son, he was just lying there with a gunshot wound to the head. Blood everywhere. And I got on my knees around my baby and I just started praying, “Annie Dooley said.

She said the tragedy is something she still can’t understand.

“Losing a child when God takes them home, I can accept that. But when gun violence is involved in taking somebody’s life, I can’t accept that. I can not,” Annie Dooley said.

And she is reaching out to the community to get any information that may be out there.

Brooksville Police Chief Johnny Burchfield said they were waiting to get results back from the crime lab, but they do have a few people of interest.

“It’s easy to make an arrest but we aren’t just after an arrest. We are after a conviction,” said Burchfield.

The chief wanted to make sure they caught the right people.

“At this point, it’s not about what you know its about what can you prove. But I want to make sure that we do this right so we can nail it,” Burchfield said.

Annie Dooley said it’s going to take the whole community to bring justice for her son.

“Please, please if you know anything, say something. If you have seen something say something, if you know something say something,” Annie Dooley said.

No arrests have been made at this time.
