  • First-degree reckless homicide, use of a dangerous weapon

On their way to the graveyard, “they passed 22nd Street and observed a white, newer, small SUV traveling southbound that stopped at a stop sign.” The SUV apparently turned behind the three of them and “drove up on Lamar’s side of the eastbound lane.” One of the persons inside Raglund’s car “then observed the front passenger, who he later identified via a photo array to be…Dennis Brookshire, produce a firearm.” The complaint indicates Brookshire “immediately started shooting several rapid gunshots at him.”

Raglund suffered five gunshot wounds — and he died at the scene. The two other persons in the car suffered gunshot wounds — one in the arm and one in the leg.

If convicted on the reckless homicide charge, Brookshire faces up to 60 years in prison. Brookshire is scheduled to enter a plea to the charges on October 27th.
